I've just gotten a Stanley 127 plane with the liberty bell cap. There's a
lever on the right side, apparently a depth of cut adjustment, but not
sure. Anyway, on the plane I have there's nothing attached to the lever.
It moves a slotted piece below the iron but doesn't touch it. I think
there's a part missing. Can someone point me to a set of pictures or
drawings/parts diagram of the model 127 that I can look at and compare?
