Tape Straightener

When tape is stored in a bin it often becomes twisted and curled. In order to straighten such tape the illustrated device has been found very efficient.

Attached adjacent a feed roll 10 in any suitable manner such as by screws 11 is a wire member 12 formed as shown with a V-shaped depressed portion 14 and a recurved end 15. The depressed portion converts helicoid or convolute portions of tape 16 into a plane for passage over the roll 10 and the end 15 guides the tape on the roller.
