Receipt-Drop Protection Round Cover

      Disclosed is a device of receipt-drop protection which is cut
off from the roll paper by an automatic cutter.  If the operator does
not take off an issued receipt, it will be pushed out by the next
receipt and will drop onto the floor.

      The Figure shows this device composition.  The receipt is fed
onto a round-shaped roll cover.  There is a space "H" between the
printer and the table, and a space "W" between the roll cover and the
cutter.

      A receipt is pushed out to hang onto the space "W" by its own
curl.  When it is pushed further and dropped, it goes into the space
"H" and hangs on.  When the curl is very strong, it cannot go into
the space "H".  In this case, it almost hangs onto the space "W" with
its own strong curl.
