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.

John,

many thanks for the links!

Concerning the 602 dials: are you sure you aren't referring to the 600 and 603 cases sharing dials?

Afaik, the 602 case was only available with 604 and 605 dials...

Best,
Hermann

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/l67/bellmaticsforum/4006 Archives/4006 Tech and Casing Guides/Seikopartstable1974pages1and2.jpg
Thanks for catching that!
