Changing Font Size

Does anyone know if you can change the font size on a IBM Wheelwriter 6?

Also, does anyone have a manual that they could scan and send to me or direct me where to buy one? I am sure this machine has features I would like to use.

To change the font size you need to install a different printwheel. There are places on the internet where you can order one along with an owners manual just do a search for the make and model.

The font size is set by the printwheel, the printing on the P/W case will tell you the pitch 10, 12, 15 or PS. Change the wheel change the pitch.

The font size is changed by changing the printwheel. The pitch selection is automatically determined by the pitch on the printwheel. Here is a link to a viewable user's manual. www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/typewriters/Wheelwriter-30.pdf

How can I make print smaller on IBM Wheelwriter 6 series 2?


You will have to purchase a wheel with different font. Is your machine capable of both 10 and 12 pitch? If it is, there will be a lever near the platton to make this change. For more information, ask at the office supply place where you go to get your new wheel.

Mechanical typewriters are not able to use scalable font. Every letter on a typewriter is the same size as every other letter. You can get larger and smaller letters (font) ... but they will occupy exactly the same size space. The only other option, as I say, is the 10 pitch or 12 pitch (how many letters you "pitch" up on the paper per inch). If your machine has this capacity, you can use both pitches.

I hope this answers your question. Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com
