For the independent feed of two adjacent paper forms FORM 1 and FORM 2 in a printer (Fig. 1), two pairs of sprocket wheels 1, 2 and 4 5 respectively, are arranged on rotatable square shaft 3 and 6, respectively. Sprocket wheels 1, 2 and 4, 5 can be laterally shifted on their half shafts 3 and 6, respectively, to adapt them to different form widths. The two half shafts 3, 6 are coaxially connected to each other via connector 7 in such a manner that they can be rotated independently of each other.
