Prior to 1921 the "K" scale was located on the front edge of the chassis. After 1954 K&E changed to profile of the 4053. Reproduction nylon cursor pads complete with 4 custom reproduction stainless steel machine screws. Includes one passive pad and one spring pad. Fits K&E pre 1954 4053 closed chassis with the "Improved Metal Framed Cursor".
Cursor lenses and metal frame not included. This cursor set is inexpensive enough for you to actually fix those broken slide rules! Please be sure to carefully screw in the machine screws. Make sure they are squarely aligned prior to turning.
Stainless steel is harder than nylon and will cut new threads if you tell it to. If you honker down while tightening them you can strip them. If it does not feel right, it is WRONG.
I personally tap each thread set and screw in the screws. If I cross thread it, I will replace it. If you screw it up, please own your handiwork. Please contact me with any K&E replacement parts needs that you have. Failure to pay within 3 days may lead to a contractual disagreement between us with a grumpy letter being placed in your permanent file!
