Is the IBM Model 5152-2 Graphics Printer capable of single sheet printing? I have a pre-printed carbon form, about five pages deep, which I would like to print on instead of threading through a typewriter or writing in by hand. I know the 5152, perhaps the standard PC dot matrix printer, usually requires sprocket hole paper. But can it work without the sprocket and not jam or come out crooked. I know IBM's next entry, the ProPrinter, can.

In the 5152, 'sprocket pin feed' is the only paper feed option.
