R E M A R K :     How to get a NEW RIBBON for this old machine  ???
===================================================================
There are cartridges for MATRIX-Printers on the market with 8 mm
NYLON-Ribbons. Check the cartridge before buying because there are
several available with different lengths.  In some cases you can
get 3 spools out of one cartridge!  You will get your fingers
dirty when you do the respooling - but the result is great!
And remember:  BOTH SIDES HAVE TO BE SPOOLED CLOCKWISE ...

    Have a look at the  HOME-MADE POWER PLUG  for 220 VAC ...
