Carlton Drill press...faceplate removal


Feb 12, 2017
I need to remove the faceplate from my Carlton radial arm drill press. It houses the cow horns and feed levers. The manual indicates that it will come off as a single unit but is not all that clear on just what bolts need to come out. I know all of the Alan head cap bolts need to be removed but it appears that there are two slotted bolts near the cow horns that also hold the faceplate on. My concern is this....The casting has been together for more than 60 years and it will require some encouragement to release from the other side of the casting. I want to make sure I have everything loose before trying to pry it off so as to not damage anything. Has anyone here removed one before?
Thanks for any advice.
