I have a Re-inker, though not exactly like the Mac Inker, but the Model 
43 has a built in "Mac Inker"-like inking system.  It's a small loop of 
ribbon with a large felt round ink pad in the cartridge.  So, if I can 
get some ink into the felt, I should be OK.

That is a question I'd like to determine.  Google was little help 
outside of calls to try WD40.
