I became interested in the Royal RE and RP after discovering them one day on this site and wondering why there were only three or four galleries of each.
After spotting this RE on Craigslist and bringing it home, I now believe that one of the reasons there are few (besides electrics just not being as popular as manuals) is because it's so friggin' loud.
Everything it does is an event. The motor vibrates my desk and can be heard down the hall, shifting sounds like gunfire, and I'm sure the automatic carriage return would happily put a hole in my wall if given the chance.
I'd be surprised if many offices bought a machine this loud, much less ten or twenty.
Besides that though, it has a solid feature set and produces nice work for a typebar machine with a cloth ribbon.
This machine also came with its manual and a little cleaning kit!

I inherited two Royal KMMs as a kid. Over a decade later I started actively collecting and repairing in 2015 shortly after discovering the existence of "weird" typewriters like the Blickensderfer and Hammond, and finding a destroyed Super Sterling to experiment on.
