I would think the best solutions would be to find a stencil kit for models and some model paint. Align, brush, align, brush, align brush. Dry... and reusable :). For some symbols you might have to do it by hand though... just paint slowly on those and be extremely neat... if you're a guy, see if you get a woman to write it, hehe (My fiance' writes on ALL the burned discs now...)

It is typing 3 times for each letter.


You are probably in the bold mode. There is either a key marked BOLD or one with bold in small letters that you must use the code key with.

The keys stick and don't always make a mark on the paper


I assume this is a type bar machine. If so first put some light oil (WD40 works well) along the segment where the type bars are swung and type to work the oil in. If this an electric machine be careful not to much oil.

IBM Wheelwriter 3 typing incorrect characters


If you have another printwheel try that, if you still have the trouble try blowing out the area where it is in stalled. If that fails turn the machine off then back on, after it completes the POR mark the printwheel with some white out, repeat the POR see if the mark is in the same place, if it isin't you probably have a selection plate problem.
