Question about Olivetti Office Equipment & Supplies
I'm trying to bring it back to life but I have never changed the ribbon, I ordered a new ribbon off eBay but the plastic spools threw me off. Do the plastic spools replace the metal ones?
Could be the plastic spools are cheaper to make and otherwise they are interchangeable.

SOURCE: replacing typewriter ribbon
i have this typewriter also. after replacing the ribbon and print wheel you have to press the (CODE) & (=) keys. This will align itself. I recently had to replace the print wheel and referred to the manual. Works like a charm.

Make sure the ribbon is facing the correct side. Usually, there is a small encave which is to be facing downwards. Snap it in place and you are good to go.

SOURCE: Royal Portable typewriter ribbon
Hi, I have a Royal Companion Portable from 1940's. I bought new ribbons at mytypewriter.com (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!
