Is there a bold key on a Wheelwriter 5 model?

I just inherited this Wheelwriter 5 model, and would like to be able to type in bold like on my old IBM model. "Control" "B" doesn't work on this model. Am I able to print bold on the Wheelwriter 5?

The old WW5 dose not have a bold function. To get bold you need a later machine any that print bold will say bold in green on the "B" key.

There is no bold feature on a WW3 you must upgrade to a WW 10 or 15 to get bold. There was at one time a bold printwheel but I haven't seenone for years.
