Thanks for the help!  Yes both spools are missing. I see the threaded left side spindle. Are both left and right spools physically the same and interchangeable?

Hi all! First time posting and first typewriter restoration so please bear with me. Everything is totally new to me.  I'm more comfortable restoring 5 tube radio sets. I believe I have a Remington 16 typewriter circa 1936. The serial number is Z581202.but I did not see it in the database. I have it mechanical functional (I believe) but wonder about the ribbon spools. Do I need the original metal spools or can I use the universal plastic spools readily available today?

Also did Remington use standard U.S. hardware in their typewriters?  Seem to find some odd pitch on the screws they used,

Thanks in advance!
Mike
