only thing i know about the Oak Leaf Plane on the bottom was it was most likely made by Simmons Hardware Company. Thats the same company that produced the Keen Kutter series of planes. WM Enders was a guy who worked for Simmons who later left the company but created the line and the name on the planes first had simmons oak leaf written on them but later his name was prominent. Not much more sure than that.
