Quote from: HarrySmith on July 01, 2022, 07:55:21 AMI have had other dials other than 5J with the clear open center fingerwheels. I do not recall what dials exactly but there was more than one.
Quote from: TelePlay on July 01, 2022, 08:09:17 AMI thought the question was "why the dot" and not about finger wheel mounts.The number plate sits between the finger wheel and the dial case and they are mounted differently. The "dot" indicates the number plate only fits the #6 dial, the back side of all WE dials show the dial type in stamped ink. Number plates were interchangeable on a dial for different reasons.The finger wheel mount for a metal wheel is different than a plastic wheel. How and where the plastic mount was installed is a new, and open, question I can't answer.I suspect the "J" designation meant a plastic finger wheel mount. Don't know.
