This tape dispensing ,machine has been Vcle
signed particularly for dispensing `relatively wide
tape and, as hereinbefore described, the lwidth of
the tape is only limited by the width of the chan
nel A¿formed between the ¿table ilanges 53. Any
desired narrow width of tape may be dispensed, it
only being necessary to adjust the supply roll sup
porting plates 45 and 4B between the selected
rollers 42, 43 or 44.

-and engageable with said carrier, and a trigger
fixed to said shaft engageable with said depress
ing lever when said operating lever is in a sub
stantially rearmost position to thereby move said
cutter downwardly to cutting position, said loose
coupling providing means whereby said cutter will
be moved upwardlyV above Vsaid table by said lat
ter means prior to rotation of said feeding’roll
ers by said gear train.
