Pin Feed Device

An element associated with each pin of a pin feed device is provided for positively stripping a form from the feed pins.

Feed pins 10 are mounted on a chain 11 for feeding a continuous form 12 having pin feed holes 13 along its edges. A tab 14 fixed to each pin extends back toward the following pin and, as a pin enters the curvilinear path around the drive sprocket 15, the associated tab is pivoted out of the line of travel of the form. Thus it acts upon the lower surface of the form and positively strips it from the following pin.
