Hermann,
you are absolutely correct. In transcribing and cutting/pasting an old blog post into SCWF I transformed -600x cases into -602x cases. The -6020 dial connection is between the 4006-600x and the 4006-603x case styles. For example, the 1974 casing guide at http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l6...pages1and2.jpg
Thanks for catching that!

Bell-matic cases and dials: The Basics

While reorganizing photos for transfer to SCWF, I was reminded of how many sellers refer to their Bell-Matics by the dial number. This ignores the clear association of case styles to caseback 4006-xxxx number. An easy example are dials designated 4006-6020 and -6021.
Based upon observation and information in the various Casing Guides, dials with these 4006-xxxx numbers can be in the 4006-602x as well as the 4006-603x style cases. However, this does not necessarily mean that any -602x dial used in the -602x style case was also used in the -603x case (and vice versa). It appears that the -603x dials had many more variations than those used in the 4006-602x style case.
