    Ohio Tool question for you:

    Some of the bench planes have castings with “No 0x” and others have just the “0x”. I just picked up a “05” like yours. At first I thought could be a Record, but it’s must be OT. It’s a project with a Stanley blade and broken tote. I bought it due to a right handed screw for the adjuster, vs the later left handed on Stanley’s. That suggested it could be an older plane.

    Does the casting # say anything about the age? I haven’t been able to find this topic addressed on the web.

    Thanks for the great information on your site.
