Hi Speed,

There may not be a hole in it, but the dust will still get into the spindle, just blow it out with compressed air. Its not a new design , that you have. [smile]

Like John said it ain't new!    I have forgotten a couple times to put the round plate on, had dust everywhere in the gaps just dusted it off  [embarassed]. As of yet not had a problem with my ratchet.
