Paper Feed Guide

      Disclosed is a structure for Paper Feed Guide of
passbook/cutform printer that is commonly used in a bank.  Generally
on this kind of printer, a paper goes along with the left side of the
Feed Guide.  This structure has room to free a paper from resistance
to feeding, such as wrinkles and folds at the left side of the paper.

      Fig. 1 shows one type of this structure that has space to free
a paper upward.  The left part of this guide shapes an "L".  A
feature of this type of guide is 2 to 5mm X 2 to 5mm space at the
left side upward.  This structure is quite suited for a guide where
the upper side must be opened and shut.

      Fig. 2 shows another type of this structure that has a space to
free the paper downward.  This type of Guide shapes contrary "L" and
has 2 to 5mm X 2 to 5mm space at the left side downward.

      When paper gets folded or wrinkled, letting the edge of the
paper go into this free space can decrease resistance to feeding.
Therefore, it becomes possible to ensure that papers feed correctly.
