    Default Rear crossslide cover 10EE

    My lathe didn't have the taper attachment cover, and I wanted a longer one than the Monarch part, so Lectrician1 welded me one. It matches my crosslide so well that after filling the seams and painting it will probably look like a Monarch part. I wish I could weld like that...

    Are you using socket head cap screws to hold the cover to the cross-slide?

    Yes, the same 1/4-20s that held the original cover on.

    Interesting. Round-dials have an elaborate spring-loaded gizmo that holds the rear cover in place and allows for easy removal.

    agreed, the cross slide would not originally had SHCS off the back of to hold the cover. As Cal said....spring loaded gizzmo

    The gizmo thingies are in the round dial manual, but the square dial parts drawings I have don't show them. The drawing doesn't show the attachment at all, just the rear cover, part 3404.

    Drawing EE-8-17 shows what seems to be a SHCS holding the back cover on. The last change date was 9/13/63 so certainly square dial.

    Technological and "logistics" thing.

    Long hex keys had become more readily available, average shop, than they were in 1936-39. Complex springy-thingie cost could be shed.
