interchangeable lever caps?

For 2 different no. 5 Stanley bailey planes… anyone know if a lever cap for a type 9 will fit a type 15?

I have a good type 15 with a broken lever cap, and the opportunity to buy a cheap type 9 that is in rough shape, but has a good lever cap.

They will fit, just not be "proper". :)
Heck you could take a lever cap from just about any 2" blade plane and it will work.
yep, all types all fit
All except those with steel frogs, like Worth, Parplus, PEXTO, and the like. These will be too short to use.

Cast iron frog types, as long as the iron width is 2", any should fit.
