    I like the protective wings under the carriage ends. Very nice machine!

    Well, I *didn't* want one until you started putting up pr0ny pictures of one. Sigh.

    How apt that an Administrator is used to do… administration.

    Very nice machine! I like Royal's Magic Margin feature too, but I've always thought they should have included an automatic right margin feature on my Arrow portable; does yours have it? Or the Magic Margin works only on the left margin of the document?

    Handsome typewriter. I like the circular molding underneath the typebars cover where the ribbon spools are, makes sense. Never knew such a model existed, never knew there was a German Royal for that matter. I learn a new thing each time I visit here, thanks for sharing, Richard.

    That is one fantastic typewriter. I like everything about it. It has such a nice color scheme with the green housing and keys. The typeface is very nice and clean and with the blue ribbon it becomes a very exquisite typewriter.

    The Magic Margin works on both sides. It's a little easier to use on the left, though — you just push the carriage to the left while operating the MM, whereas on the right you have to hold the carriage release at the same time.

    Definitely wouldn't have guessed that's a Royal apart from – you know – the giant ROYAL badge on it. Nice find.

    I dig it!. We I was growing up, we had a Chevy Malibu station wagon almost that same color.

    Found one at an estate sale yesterday! You hit the nail on the head with "solid, smooth and snappy." Mine has a lazy h and the feet are a total loss. But the little typing I was able to do before handing it over to Bill for repair was really nice. I just need to work out how I'm going to manufacture gray rubber feet…

    Congratulations! These are not easy to find and they are fine typewriters.

    Hello Richard,

    I have one of these machines and what everyone says is true. I have an issue and I need clarification. My machine has a bell but it's not hooked up. Is this supposed to be this way? I made an extension that attaches to the tab on the right side to trigger the bell, but I don't think it ever had the extension. The bell is more of a Clunk than a ring. Anyone have photos of the back?

    Thanks again Richard,

    Don Feldman
