I did some woodwork for a neighbor and he asked me if I would like an old plane he found in his barn.
I said sure and he gave me this superb piece of history, which is one of the coolest planes ever!

In picture four, which is the front of the plane, I think I see a name or lettering of some sort.
I thought more people than myself would enjoy seeing this!

I think your plane is an Orgontz tool which was a secondary line of Ohio Tools. The very cool modifications was done after :-)

That is a true definition of a frankenplane. It even has a few bolts sticking out of the side

That plane was loved enough by the previous owners to to keep it working for them no matter what. I would clean it and put it on top of my tool wall just so I could use it for inspiration.
