Short version: Not ideal but can I use a 2” lever cap on a plane with 2 3/8” wide blade? How interchangeable are different brand lever caps?
Background: Got a shining Millers Falls #22 body off of craigslist for $35 all in. Got a Stanley blade and chipbreaker from late 1800’s for $10. All I need is a lever cap but the ones for sale now are around $20. Hoping for a better deal but I also have a newer #4 like Stanley with the blue paint and kidney shaped hole in the lever cap. Please forgive me for buying such a piece of crap, I just saw a rusty plane that I thought I could restore to use, it was the first step in my plane addiction and I had no idea what I was looking at when I bought it :P
