He can use the later model end gear cover bed clamp and make the cover as suggested or try to adapt a later
13 cover. This is an early Series O, 9 inch cover.

That was my thinking also. Cheaper and custom made.
Why not do like they would have done in 1913 if they saw a need? Bend a strap iron to follow the need perimeter around the gears then weld to a sheet of metal to form the cover. Then you can add a hinge to open the gear train, a feature lacking on the older lathes.
