Question about Olympia Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a very old Olympia portable manual typewriter Ser# 1577074. The rubber bumpers that fit between the covers and the frame are worn out so the carriage rubs on on the covers while typing in lower case. Do you know where I ca buy replacement rubber bumpers? Thanks

Parts are not going to be available for that typewriter anymore. That means you have to get creative. Either go to your local hardware store or a Home Depot. and look for rubber bumpers that you might affix to the bottom of something to prevent it from scratching a surface. Yous should be able to find something like that in the hardware section.

I'm looking for a power cord for an Olympia Electronic Compact typewriter. Where can I find this?

It is a two-prong cord, and the end that goes into the typewriter looks almost like a fat #8.

Some printers and portable radios use a similar type of cord.
Basically, if it fits in the typewriter, it will work.

Prices vary wildly, from $12.00 for a brand new one at Radio Shack (The Source) to about $2.00 in a second hand store if you're willing to look around.
