Thanks, Bandit! I gotta say, I got no idea what that type of lever cap is called, where a little thumbscrew applies the tension and fulcrums against a bar rather than a screw thru the keyhole. Yes, you are onto something there, I’d forgotten that Fultons are German! I’ve tried a Liberty Bell cap, from a #132, it was too wide, I think I have a #127 or other somewhere to try. I’ve got very few planes that are not of the typical Stanley lever cap design, hmm I’ll have to work on that. If all else fails, I’ll machine a block of brass, and bring it to the “Engravables” kiosk at the mall and have them do the DRP& Co logo, that would be uber-cool. Man, I’ll be a hundred years old before all my projects are finished…
