Continuous forms 10 from a supply 11 are pulled from printer mechanism 12 by a pair of counterrotating brushes 13 and 14. The brushes 13 and 14 are mounted so that the bristles would intersect absent the form 10 between. The bristles on the brushes will be strongly deflected by form 10. The force on form 10 will be balanced with an equal force on each brush. Thus form 10 will stabilize and be fed equidistantly between the two brush centers.
