    here is the screwback DW5600C with regular 5600e bezel

    a while back i was arguing with some of the traditionalists about not needing the brazil bezel nor screws in order to enjoy the heck out of a DW-5600C
    at the time i refused to show pictures
    but now here it is





    save your life from suffering of waiting for brazilian bezel, or not wearing your favorite square in fear of not finding the next bezel around

    bullbar + bezel = 14 + 7 @ pacparts

    of course, if bullbar is not your thing then this mod doesn't help

    I am waiting for shipment from pacparts to mod it - so i thought i'd share before it becomes something different

    regards

    Looks like it fits pretty good. Do the screws stretch the bezel out too much?

    Interesting...

    At $21 for the parts it's marginally cheaper than the Brazillian kit ($25 IIRC, including an o-ring and strap), but not by a lot.

    Can I assume it needs the bullbar to sit right i.e. is this a no go if you don't like bullbars?

    The DW5600E bezel doesn't quite fit the DW5600C SS case, trimming of the bezel is required to make it a good fit.

    So the bullbar is there to tie the lock down to the SS case.

    I tried the 5500e bezel, trimmed it, etc. It just doesn't fit right. I even used a heater to soften the plastic. The pictures above had the screws removed which IMO isn't right. I've orderd the Brazillian bezel too many times to count. I love it each time.

    clarification: no screws at all because the 5600e bezel holes won't get there

    --------------

    update: i just messed up the module - I think the regular module 5600e will fit, last time i tried with a crooked button of a screwback, it fitted but one or two buttons didn't work - here i come, ebay, again - this would mean another 2 months to complete this project - unless someone here kindly donate a working module LOLz
    so here I am
