If you have your old spools you can wrap ant 1/2 " ribbon on them if you don't they are difficult to find Gen. ribbon T30 or Nu Kote 53 should work.

I don't know how to change the ribbon in my olivetti studio 45 typewriter.


Could be the plastic spools are cheaper to make and otherwise they are interchangeable.

Olivetti Underwood Studio 44 ribbon won't advance.


Remove the top cover, remove ribbon spools, press a key and grab it with your finger, note the mechanical motions toward the ribbon advancer movement, usually found near the center of the ribbon holder or could be on the outside edge also, there is a reverser mechanism also that should be fully to one side or the other, it switches the ribbon direction to avoid a 'dead end' while typing. By moving the key toward the platen and away it should drive the ribbon mount spool by a shifting drive lever of some kind. If you cannot resolve this issue, take it to a rare typewriter repair shop, it is too hard to explain in this format, and mechanical skills are involved, hope you have them, ;)

Loose ribbons, left one doesn't coil the right one's feed


Old Olivettis used a robbon spool that was driven by the turned uver tabs from the ribbon core. Universal replacement ribbons do not have metal cores. If you still have your old spools you can wind the new ribbon on them.

I have an Olivetti Lettera 32. I put a brand new ribbon in it and when I type, the letters are coming up too light on the paper. How do I fix this? What needs to be done?


First thing is to be sure the ribbon is feeding, watch while you type. if not you may have a universal spool ribbon that isn't quite that universal. Wind the ribbon onto your old spools.

I recently acquired a vintage underwood 315 typewriter. I bought new ribbon, 2 spools black. However when I put the spools on I cannot get the screws to do up as nothing comes far enough up the spools to...


Dear Pat,
I also own Underwook 315 typewriter and can understand your problem well. Probably you are not using the right spool. The height of the spool is causing problem for you. Please check the height of the spool which should be exactly 1.5 cm. If the one you are having is more than 1.5 cm height then get it changed. Hope it should work thereafter.

We would like to find an ink roller for an olivetti Lettera 35 typewritter


The lettera takes a DIN spool ribbon, very hard to find you may be able to find a universal spool that will work. A General Ribbon T4 or you can wrap a ribbon onto your spools.

This ribbon fits many different typewriters 25 and 35 are the same. Spool should be the metal type not the plastic, and you need the nuts on the top....
