Question about IBM Wheelwriter 30 Typewriter

1 Answer

Printwheel Presentor I recently purchased a IBM wheelwriter 5 and would like to purchase a Presentor printwheel for it. Are the printwheels interchangable with other wheelwriters? I saw in another manual (the secretary at my school has another model of Wheelwriter) that the presentor 10 pitch had a part number of 1353015, but looking online, I see several other Presentor printwheels under different part numbers. I don't have a manual to check.

The Wheelwriters all take the same printwheels some WW3's won't do proportional space. The different part #'s may mean they have special symbols like double underscore, other than that they should work on a WW5.

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 do you change font size on IBM Wheelwriter 30, II?


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

Only a small portion of the letters print on the page.


Printwheel in wrong. release the printwheel, make sure the pin is aligned with the slot on the hub and snap it back in. The printwheel should spin, then home out to the left margin, then it should be ok. Check to make sure no pedals on the printwheel are bent.

How do you change the font size on the ibm wheelwriter 3 typewriters?


The WW3 will type whatever printwheel is in the machine. If you want something different you will have to buy another printwheel. It says on the printwheel whether it is a 10 pitch or a 12 pitch.

Check in the area where the printwheel is installed for paper or other debris. If it does the same thing with the printwheel out then it is probably a printwheel sensor.

Character spacing


Joany, look for a function,usually on the left side of the keyboard on the IBM,that has the markings 10,12 and 15. And if my memory is correct,there will be a series of lamps which light up at the selected pitch. I would look for a key marked "pitch" and press that. Good luck.
