Receipt Issue Mechanism

      Disclosed is a device of receipt issue mechanism which is
provided with bending space of receipt for preventing receipt jam.

      When an operator prevents receipt feeding before auto-cut
operation, receipt waves in the paper path (shown in Fig. 1).  After
auto-cut operation, shorten receipt is issued.  Feed resistance is so
big because of the wave which is caused by receipt stacking in the
paper path and jam occurs (shown in Fig. 2).  If the top of receipt
bends as shown by A in Fig. 2, cutter cuts multiple papers.  So,
cutter happens to suffer damage.

      This device adds a finger sink and finger protector which
provides bending space where an operator can not touch the receipt
(shown in Fig. 3).  If an operator prevents receipt feeding before
auto-cut operation, receipt bends, as shown in Fig. 3.  Consequently,
after auto-cut operation, normal length receipt is issued and jam
doesn't occur.

      This device improves another problem that something like clips
or coins drop into the mechanism through B (shown in Fig. 2).  Finger
protector and finger sink prevent their drop.

     Finger protector can rotate, as shown in Fig. 4.  Then, larger
bending space is obtained.
