- Sweep feed
- A feed where the passes are made going from feedee to feedee back and forth, left-to-right and right-to-left. For instance, if A is feeding B, C, and D, then the sequence of a sweep feed might be B C D C B C D C B. It could instead go in the opposite direction (i.e. start with D). This is the 'usual' feed when facing three feedees. The center feedee has half of the passes of the feeder, the outside feedees half of that. So, a 2-count for the feeder turns into a 4-count for the center feedee, and a boring 8-count for the outside feedees. Compare to Typewriter Feed.
