I was changing out the ribbon in my 1964 Olympia SM-8 so I thought I might as well make a video about it. Enjoy!

    Ahhh. High School typing class with half broken gray crinkle finish Royals. 60 words per minute with 2 errors was the final!

    I spy a Zoom H6. Lovely bit of kit. I'm currently using it as a sound card with phantom power for my big condenser microphone on video calls.

    Not judging I know a ton of people hunt and peck but for some reason I pictured Fran as having excellent keyboarding.

    Mmmmm. Green

    Recently been reviving spirit duplicators with tattoo stencil sheets. Seem to be the closest. Sadly you need a thermofax to make stencils. But work wonderfully!

    Next step is thermal mineo stencils using risograph masters and the same tattoo thermofax machine copier….or as they are sold now, tattoo stencil maker

    Reminds me of a ribbon re-inker my dad fashioned for our Epson LX-80. It took a roll-on bottle of stamp pad ink, and had a little crank to advance the ribbon.

    Thanks Fran it reminded me of my childhood. You know you have just committed yourself to send back a bazillion of those reply cards to all the people who will write you to get one, right ?

    Wow, what a time warp! Did that several times as a kid. Good trick with the punchcard. I used to loosen the platen and grab the top and bottom corners to align the paper. Love the green!

    Alright, now lets change the belt in the Selectric!

    I've never seen a green typewriter ribbon before. I've seen non-repro blue.
