Mixing of parts from one type to another was fairly common but mixing parts from a Defiance or Handyman to a Bailey wouldn’t have originated from Stanley. It was probably done after, either because of breakage or loss.

I had just the opposite happen, I bought what I thought was a handyman. I turned out to be a nice type 8 Bailey #4 with a handyman cap.

You can see another thread on the issue.
