LQP02 printer?

Hi folks. I have in my head from way back in the 1980s, when I worked for a company that sold and serviced them, that the DEC LQP02 daisy-wheel printer is a repackaged Juki 6100. I'd not seen one in many years, but we got one in at LSSM recently, and we're getting it running. We purchased a ribbon from a ribbon vendor that purports to be for a Juki 6100. And most annoyingly, it doesn't fit!

Is my memory incorrect about the LQP02 being a Juki 6100, or did the vendor sell me the wrong ribbon?

Thanks,
-Dave

I'm finding further evidence that it's a Qume, from the Sprint family. Correcting 40-year-old bad information in my brain is going to take a while. ;)

That's a Qume Sprint 9 in DEC disguise by the look of it... Clean the hammer and housing with iso and leave it perfectly dry/clean and don't let the spring inside the hammer guide escape...

Oh yes, I'd forgotten about this thread. It's definitely a Qume, and the following ribbons fit:

Qume Sprint 7, 8, 9, 10, 11
Apple LQP
AT&T 455
Burroughs AP1305
Lexitron VT 913, 921, 942, 1201S
Exxon 500, 5000, 935
Wordplex 80-2, 80-3, 80-4
Honeywell 24, 25, PRU7200, 7201, 7202, 7210, 7211, 7212
Decision Data 6355
Nukote B140

The LQP02 is up and running, and will soon be added to the DECmate-I system on exhibit at LSSM.

I found this as replacement.
And picture from original LQP02 handbook as to compare.
There were 2 types of ribbon, film and nylon
Part Number Description
LQP02-KA 6 high-quality impression multi strike film ribbons. Single loop, sensor stops printer at ribbon’s end before characters are lost.
LQP02-KB 6 continuous-loop nylon ribbons. Use until desired type quality can no longer be obtained.

See attachment for replacement found in some Google Book:

Customer Supply Center: Region 3, page 56
