Thread: DecWriter III Ribbons

  1. #1

    Default DecWriter III Ribbons

    I'm after a bit of advice please.
    Are the ribbons for the Decwriter 1,2 & 3 the same.
    i.e. Will ribbons described as for the LA36R work on the LA120 (Decwriter III).

    Hi Dave, The LA36 ribbon part number and specs are 36-10558 0.5 in w x 40 yards and the LA120 is 36-12153-01 0.5 in w x 60 yards. I can't remember if the spools had the same hole in the centre.

    Thanks Paul, I've found some reasonably priced LA36 ribbons so if they are the same fitting as the LA120 ones but just 20 Yards shorter then they might be a good buy.

    I had a look at my box of LA36 ribbons and my Decwriter III. The spindle hole looks the same, but the hub diameter is different. That suggests the shorter ribbon will fit in the Decwriter III, but I suspect the larger ribbon won't fit in the LA36.
