Protection of Media Drop Mechanism

      Disclosed is an invention which does not drop papers from
passbook cutform printers after printing.  The invention can stop
dropping all kinds of papers that are used in a banking organ.

      The invention is a rubber-pad which is put in the chute-edge of
a passbook cutform printer.  The shape of the rubber-pad is 230mm
length*3mm wide*2mm thick.  The upper surface of the rubber-pad and
the chute surface must be the same height for a paper to be easily
inserted in a chute and to make friction when paper is pulled out
only.  Referring to the Figure, there are two strong points in this
invention:
  1.  As the rubber-pad touches papers on a line in wide, long paper
       like A4 size or a heavy one like pressure-sensitive, papers
are
       also stopped dropping by this friction from a rubber-pad.
  2.  It is easy to insert papers because there is no friction as the
       rubber-pad is at the edge of a chute.  In addition to it,
removal
       of hindrances (leaf spring, films etc.) from a feeding channel
       makes it easier to insert and pull paper out.
