Abstract

This stand 10 supports a printer 12 employed with the IBM Personal Computer at an angle to minimize room used by the printer and the printer supplies. The printer rests at an angle of approximately 60Πso that its controls and outputs are clearly viewable by the operator. Paper 14 is stacked in an optional tray behind the printer. The printer cables 18 are positioned to one side or the other and held in place by integral cinching slots so they do not interfere with the paper as it is outputted from the printer. The orientation of the stand is not fixed to the edge of table. It is formed from single 15" x 48" sheet 1/8" thick.
