The door to the electrical compartment was recently spray painted. Observe the nylon skid washers under the two captive RHMS on the edge of the door. After this much work I am not going to allow screws to scratch the paint. The S.S. captive screws have turned down shanks, polished heads and are 5/16-18 x1"
If you locate a Rivett whose cross-slide is fitted with the optional accumulator dial, feel fortunate. These dials have two engraved cylinders of 3-1/8" diameter that revolve at different speeds. The engraved thousandths lines are far apart and are easy to read. The rear cylinder displays the number of turns of the front cylinder - a DRO of 50 years ago.
