- Aug 10If you're just looking for an easy way to replace the ribbon,
there are several vendors on ebay that sell modern spools with
a removable insert at the core.
Leave the insert in and if fits a standard machine. Push the
insert out and it fits the wide core of a Remington machine.
The cores just push out with your finger.
They can be differentiated on sight by the white plastic of the
removable core. It stands out in the photo.
