Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I have a Royal educator electric typewriter which is not operating. I took the casing off and found that the pulley which is connected to the motor and wheel was broken, other than that it is in perfect running order. I can not find a replacement pulley, can you direct me to site where i can purchase pulley and a ribbon. I know it is a trivial part, but i love it. It is just the right size for the space i have. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much; Bill

SOURCE: The ribbon is no longer printing on the tape.

are you sure it uses a ribbon? Or does it use an ink roller. If it uses a ribbon it should reverse by it self. Make sure it is installed properly, there is not a ribbon reverse switch it should do it automatically. if its installed right.

SOURCE: Typewriter suddenly will not print!

It's been awhile since I've worked on these.

What is the typing mechanism in here? I believe Brother was using a wheel.

SOURCE: Royal Portable typewriter ribbon

Hi, I have a Royal Companion Portable from 1940's. I bought new ribbons at (select the "Royal Portable" ribbon). It fits. Anyway if it doesn't it's not an expensive mistake, but I researched this and apparently all vintage Royal Portables have the same standard ribbon. Worked out in my case. Good luck!

Need new motor

I don't know why you think it needs a motor. There are 3 motors carrier, ribbon lift and paper feed I have never replaced any of them. Before you do put some WD40 on there bearings and lube the silver shaft that the carrier slides on and the carrier pulleys.

Is your typewriter made by Royal or Brother? I think your question was mis-posted under Brother as opposed to Royal. IF your machine is a Royal, Brother will NOT be able to help you. THIS GOES FOR EITHER MANUFACTURER...Have you inspected the platen drive gear? Is it cracked, missing teeth or otherwise damaged? If not look on both sides of the typewriter for the drive motor. Look to see if the gear mates with the motor.
