Hi:

There is no manual way to change the pitch on any IBM Wheelwriter. If you want a different pitch you need to change the printwheel.

How do I change the font size


You can not change the font on a type writer. It is mechanical and you are stuck with the type on the machine. If you want something different you need to use a computer or run a copy through a printer.

How do I change the size/font of the letters? Bold and underline too?


To change font and pitch, you need to buy a different printwheel. machines came with a prestige elite 12 printwheel. Prestige elite has small letters and 12 puts 12 charactors per inch. Letter gothic is larger size letters. Google search for ibm wheelwriter printwheel, also called a daisy wheel.

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

If it is printing just the tops the platen may not be fully seated in the side frames, press down firmly on both ends of the platen.
If it is just printing poorly the print solenoid cap is cracked or the ribbon may not be feeding properly.
