Topic tags/keywords: lever cap bailey plane

I am in need of a Stanley Bailey 2 inch wide lever cap (for a No. 4 or 5 plane).
I’m looking for the older style with the smooth front surface (i.e., no Stanley logo and no raised design from a transitional). I don’t mind if it has rust, but don’t want one that is chipped or broken in any way.
To be clear, I’m looking for one like this:

I’m hoping that someone in the LJ community has one in a parts drawer that they’d be willing to let go.
I do have other parts for Bailey planes that I’m willing to swap for this.
Let me know what you need and if I have the part, we can discuss a swap.
Alternatively, if you have one to sell at a nominal price, let me know.
Please send a PM to discuss.

-- Jim, IL
