So when did Sargent start making planes for E. C. Simmons? I have been told and have read that Stanley and later the Ohio tool company made the planes for both Simmons as Keen Kutter and Shipleah under the Diamond edge brand. Did Sargent make them after Ohio ran its course?.. I have not been able to find out exactly who and when this plane was manufactured.. I know that I have seen other KeenKutter planes with the frog numbered 409 like mine.. also understand that it was not until later in production that the KeenKutter logo was placed on the lever caps.. So the hunt continues.. anyone else have anything for me?>??... What year would you think for manufacture.. 1950’s maybe?? thanks.. Papa
