Came across this old block plane in my father-in-law’s old tools. Can anyone ID it? Is it a worthy user, if I tune it up?

Is there anything printed on the blade?

The lettering on the back looks like Ohio Tool Company to me.

Needs a wooden front knob. Get the blade SHARP, and see how it works.

Looks like a Stanley #220 knock-off.

These block planes with the knurled nut blade advance are far superior to ones that use a lever to adjust the blade. I don’t know about this specific plane, but if cleaned up and sharpened, I’d bet it will be a good user.

Nothing printed on the blade. I’ll take it home and sharpen it when I get around to it. Thanks for the info!
