Dia-compe DT shifters and 10-speed Shimano

Just wondering if These Dia Compe Silver Shifters would work with a Shimano 10 speed cassette. I can't see why it wouldn't, but I figured I'd ask someone smrter than me before I do something stupid like buy them. Especially since they say 5-9 speed only.

They will work beautifully, if you know how to use them

Obviously (I hope it's obvious) they are friction shifters so they will work with any number of cogs. Since they will sweep the width of an 8 or 9-speed cassette, they will also work for 10-speed which are no wider.

Yeah, I figured it was the obvious answer. I just thought it was weird that everywhere I found these online spec'd them for 9-speed and maybe there was something not-quote-so-obvious I was missing. But thanks for clearing it up.

Typos will do that for you. No extra charge.

I edited my original post to correct the error.
