I'm pretty set, I reckon, in what I need to know about typewriters...of course if anyone else has any information or advice to give, please, dump it on in. I'll be happy to read it.
But I'm still wondering about ribbons.
I know that you can still buy typewriter ribbons. But I am wondering if there is a way to...hear me out here...make your own ribbons?
By this I mean, is it possible to go out, buy some ribbon of the appropriate width and length, and then saturate it with ink, wind it up on a spool, and then type with it for long periods of time? From what I understand, it is possible to re-saturate original typewriter ribbons through various methods. But I'm wondering if it's possible to make your own "home-made" typewriter ribbons, as it were...
