Re: dials

I bought a used 9A from a used machine dealer about 1970. It was missing the cross feed screw as the previous owner had put on a T slot cross slide with a hand lever.

The unused compound rest was with it, and had a small dial.

I bought a new cross feed screw assembly from a South Bend dealer and it came with the large dial. I have not had a problem with that, and the difference means only that some of it is a replacement part.

That is interesting, I wouldn't have guessed that you could opt for a mix of dial sizes. I would have assumed that one would receive BOTH large dials.
