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

When I am typing on mySwintec 7040 letters are touching, how should I fix this problem?

Plain old fasion gear greese or a little touch of WD 40 would work just perfect for unsticking this.

Change font size on my bother ML 100

A typewritter is not like a computer. It is a mechanical device, that works by pressing an embossed letter in the daisy wheel through a inked tape into the paper.
The only way you can change either the font type or the font size is by buying and replacing the daisy wheel by another one with different font type/size letters.
To get to know more about your typewritter and accessories that might still be available to it, download Brother ML-100 Typewriter User's Manual
Click on "Go to View/Download Page" and in the new page click the "View/Download" button.
Look for page 16 (last page) of the manual for a list of cassette daisy wheels.

I am trying to type a letter but when I strike the letter g it types a $. None of the keys seem to be lined up with the correct letter on the wheel. How do you correct this problem?

there is a slide switch on the L.H. side of the key board that reads 10,12,15, PS
the switch needs to match the print wheel stile you have in your typewriter. most typ's have 10 or 12.
PS stands for proportional spacing a takes a spicule print wheel

Types wrong letters

It sounds like you have the 10,12,15,PS selector switch on PS with a 10, or 12 print wheel installed. Return to the left margin, move the switch to 10 and type.
