Traytop LAROP

Post-Script: Here's a close-up of the dowel-mounted roll nestled in the X-joint of the tray table legs. The end discs were simply scraps of black foam core board; I'm sure you can figure out a more elegant solution.

Indeed. Seems like something that should have been thought of in the typewriter's heyday. I expect that it's the specialized uses to which we put the machines that inspires this sort of new creativity. :D

Good idea. I never gave roll-feed much of a thought due to carriage motion. You've proven it works.
On an IBM Selectric it would be perfect.

I would be tempted to think the full-width teletype paper might have a harder time moving back and forth without issues - but then I recall that Kerouac did this on manual typewriters with moving carriages. And with Dramamine and caffeine, too!
