Paper-Pass Open Mechanism

      Disclosed is a mechanism which enables the operator to remove
JAM paper easily by the automatic paper-pass opening system.

The Figure shows a section of this mechanism:
  1.  shows the normal state.
  2.  shows the paper JAM in the printer.  The cutter is
       opened by the pressure of the JAM paper.

       mechanism has no ratch, and the cutter closes only by its
       own weight.
