Abstract

A technique is described whereby a mechanism is attached to printer mechanisms, such as wire matrix or wheel type printers, so as to provide access to the feeding and stacking of paper only from the front. The concept is universal in nature in that it enables front feeding and stacking of many different types of paper, such as single sheets, fan fold, cassettes of paper and of several different sizes.
