Sheet feeder and printer fitted with sheet feeder

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #5938355.

A sheet feeder includes a sheet support, on which sheets of paper can be stacked with their front ends aligned on the bottom surface of the support. The feeder also includes two feed rollers for feeding one by one the sheets stacked on the support. An inclined surface extends downstream in the feeding direction from the front end of the bottom surface of the support, and inclines downstream with respect to the bottom surface. The rollers are positioned out of symmetry with respect to the width of the bottom surface. A side end portion of the inclined surface which is far from the rollers is less resistant to sheets of paper than the portions of this surface which face the rollers. Even a wide sheet can be fed without inclining with respect to the feeding direction.
