Re: Will parts from newer lathes fit a 1913 model 29 lathe?

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.

@Roger Bickers - See below for the head stock end view as requested.  Dimensions added for clarity.  
Sorry about no banjo gear mounted.  If needed, I can add and measure.
Would any other measurements help?
