#42 Type 6
This right side view of a type 6 shows clearly the mechanism
of where the slitter is attached. Some examples of the type 6
exhibit signs of being type 5 bodies modified to accept the slitter
and rear depth stop (as is the case with this example). The slot
is milled directly through the filigree with no straight ribs/guides
cast into the body to support it and provide a smooth slot. These
modified body models tend to have pressed steel depth stops.
Later models show a change in the casting to facilitate the slitter
and depth stop. The rear depth stop is of brass construction
matching the front depth stop. The fence on a type 6 is of the
wrap around design.
