A blog by Vikram Shah about pencils, typewriters, and other(non)related interests.
Congrats! Now you can start collecting type balls! Have you priced the cost of ribbon cartridges? I'm curious how much they run.
Vikram, a fresh ribbon and correction tape will clear that print up dramatically. Carbon ribbons do deteriorate with age, exposure to moisture and heat. Sometimes old ribbons work great, other times they won't work hardly at all. The adhesive dries up in the correction tapes too which causes the lift-off to not work correctly.
