  • Patent number: 5931407
    Abstract: It is an object of the present invention to provide a paper feeding mechanism for rolled paper which is easily set and has excellent carriageablity. When rolled paper is set, one guide member is pressed downward by an opened cover so that it comes closer to a body. At this time, a protruding member provided on the one guide member abuts against the other guide member. When the paper feeding mechanism operates, the cover is closed so that the one guide member separates from the body and urged toward the other guide member by an urging member, whereby the protruding member abuts against the other guide member. Therefore, since a width of a carrying path is held by a height of the protruding member between the one and other guide members, insertion of a rolled paper end is facilitated, and thus the paper can be smoothly carried with the aid of the tension of the paper.
