When you say the typeface is worn, you're referring to the decals, right? Not the type slugs?

Clark,

I have been collecting service manuals with the intention of scanning and uploading. There does need to be a central source, because there are getting to be fewer by the day. So far I have about 15-20, including some parts catalogs whose detailed drawings are also helpful in repairs.

My challenge is finding a decent scanning solution - a document feeder that doesn't chew paper and a decent solution for OCR so text can be searchable. I may have to stay with image scanning just to get them up, we'll see.

I'm not sure that any exist. I did an exhaustive search when I acquired my first, including writing to Olivetti. I will check my notes but I'm pretty sure they only had the operator's guide and some old advertising materials.

The only thing I didn't try was reaching out to current or retired typewriter repairmen in Italy. If there's anyone on the forum who speaks Italian, that would be worth a shot.
