Hi Martin,
The Ultimate was/ is a extremly simple mechanicle ticket machine when compared with others around at the same time.

The Ultimate sold well to operations with a smaller budget to spend on ticket equipment ,such as Council / Corporation run bus services,the ribbon is simply moved as and when by opening the side doors at each end and and pulling the ribbon to a unused section,this was proberbly performed by depot staff rather than the Conductor.

There is a manual for the Ultimate avaliable from www.ticketrolls.co.uk .

What a stunning collection-You even have a "Duplex Punch" made by the Railway Register Mfg Co.! On a more mundane level, I have yet to see how the ribbon was shifted on the "Ultimate". The patent is no help! Presumably it was folded under the side straps, and "pulled" manually a small amount each shift? It is strange that there is no manual on the site covering the Ultimate? It must have been awkward to run out of a roll in mid operation, whereas fanfolded ticketscould be pre-loaded, though the count would change. Finally, a really 'naff question-"How does one access the Members List?!"
Many thanks,
Martin.
