R E M A R K S :   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 ...

R E M A R K S   T O   R E S T O R A T I O N :
*******************************************************************
When the lid is pulled for exchanging paper roll, the machine stops
The STUD in the LID holds down the "SAFETY-Lever" ...

        

       ... For TESTING & TUNING the "SAFETY-Lever" has to be fixed!
