Abstract

This article describes an improved printer stand which includes a provision for stacking and containing paper as it comes off the printer. The stand illustrated in the drawing would set on the same level as, but behind, the printer. The bottom section 10 would hold the unprinted paper. The top section 12 would allow stacking and containment of the printed output as it came off the printer. The stand would be elevated 1 1/2" on the front, sloping to no elevation at the back, to aid in paper stacking and to allow for the two "cutouts" 14 and 16 in the base. These cutouts would, respectively, keep the interface cable and the power cord, which extend from the rear of the printer, from interfering with the paper feed. The separation between the bottom and top sections would be approximately 3".
