It is interesting. The Magna 10E and maybe very early 10ER's had no hole in the head stock behind the ID plate. Most (?) 10ER's do. Then Magna produced the MK 5 with the "A" head stock and no hole. I wonder what the thinking was there.
I attribute it to lack of forethought. Since there was little to no reason for access in the 10(other than replacing the power switch and the motor was easily removed) no thought was given to access for lubrication etc.. I do not think user lubrication was either since they did not have an oil hole in the movable sheave hubs either.
I am curious what the first Greenie manual had to say about lubricating the movable sheaves.
I agree, but that begs the question why did they put the hole in the model 10 in the first place?
To make switch replacement easier?(or original factory assembly) To make it lighter . I know not why.
