Last night I introduced you all to the newest addition to my collection, the Oliver No. 3. I was playing around with it last night and it seemed the ribbon was advancing in a normal fashion (I looked at the top and the bottom of the machine, watching the spools and mechanism), but today when I tried the ribbon again, the typeface tore a hole in it! So, it obviously is not advancing as it should be. I was wondering if any of you have ever had this problem on Oliver 3's and if so, what did you do to fix it? The machine has been cleaned (not deep cleaned, however) and oiled, so I don't think it's as simple as that but was wondering if it may have something to do with the ribbon guides, as they do seem a bit off-kilter. If you have any suggestions or a link, please send them on!
