If I remember correctly, my SS grinder package used self tapping screws to attach the guard. Not able to go look at this time, but pretty sure about it.

Also, I read on the Shopsmith Tool Hunter blog that if you remove the cover with the Shopsmith logo, you'll get an interesting surprise (I'm guessing the name of another company that makes the major component) .
