Are you referring to the ribbon with black on top and white on bottom?
In my experience (maybe I have cheap stuff) but the white out tends to splatter not only on the platen but on the ribbon vibrator and fingers. It's messy.

I was talking before about liquid white-out, but I totally know what you mean about the correcting black/white ribbon! Those things made one of my typewriters look like a snow covered mountain inside before I really knew better/thought about it!

NOS stands for New Old Stock and is a common abbreviation in the realm of old stuff. It means that the thing was never sold by a dealer (New) and was found among his "Old Stock" when the inventory was liquidated. 

"NOS typing paper" is somewhat misleading, though, as there were a lot of different papers sold as being specifically for typwriters and I think the OP is referring to "eraseable paper", which has a special coating. See this article for a concise description <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eaton%27s_Corrasable_Bond>.

Yeah, that's what I meant. Sorry for any confusion.

I use heavy weight Eaton's Corrasable, to be exact

Aren't you in the United States? Where on earth did you get a supply of paper that was originally sold by a Canadian department store that went belly up many years ago?!?

Re: Correction Paper - Erasers - White Out - Which One?

I think you're joking, Uwe, right? Eaton's Corrasable Bond was made by the Eaton Paper Co. of Pittsfield, Massachusetts. I don't know when they stopped production, but you can still find it offered on the auction sites. Sometimes.

Re: Correction Paper - Erasers - White Out - Which One?

No, I wasn't joking.

Eaton's, if you live in Canada, was a major department store that for the longest time was a prominant name for Canadian shoppers. The company sold typewriters - some branded with its own name - and typewriter paraphernalia too, so when I read "Eaton's" it was natural that the store first came to my mind. Conversely, I've never heard of the Eaton paper company from Massachusetts. This is an international forum after all, so it's not a strectch that a mix-up involving local names can happen. My apologies. The NOS source makes more sense to me now.

I got my paper from eBay

That is a very nice looking Eaton's Super 5! I love the colors.

A type sample on that paper would be something interesting to look at.

Re: Correction Paper - Erasers - White Out - Which One?

Is there anything close to this paper being made today? I'm assuming not...
