Abstract

This invention enables a motor to drive an element for one revolution and have the element stop while the motor continues to drive other elements. The specific use is to drive a "D"-shaped roller in a paper- handling mechanism initially for one revolution to start the movement of one piece of paper. The motor will continue to drive the paper through a gear train and pinch rollers during and after the revolution of the "D"-shaped roller.
