After some 30+ years of service, a chip finally found it's way inside the old silver body Trav a Dial on my lathe. Luckily I have a spare and can keep going. But I'd like to take this apart to clean it. Unlike the modern units where the screw heads are epoxied over, this has 4 of the 6 screws exposed. The remaining two are under the dial, and I cannot get the dial off. I've pried with more force than I really thought wise with no success. I can see a wave spring of some sort which obviously provides friction for the bezel. I think it has something to do with retaining it too, but can't figure out what to do about it.
Anyone know how to get the bezel off without breaking something?
