Abstract

The mechanism enables the exact realignment of a page containing previously typed characters with a printing element. Transparent plastic shield 1 is mounted on card holder 2, slidably mounted on fixed member 3. The operator utilizes scales 4 and 5 to achieve approximate alignment of the page with print head 6. Then holder 2 is moved to the right to its detent position, shown in phantom, and a character key is struck which effects printing on shield 1. If the page is not correctly aligned, the image on shield 1 misaligns with the image on the page. The operator then aligns the two images by moving the page until the image on shield 1 is correctly superimposed above the image on the page. Holder 2 is then returned to the left causing shield 1 to pass wiper 7, thus erasing the image it bears.
