Ohio 099 Combination plane (foreground). The plane was originally sold in a pasteboard box of which only the front panel and label survive.
In the background are the pages of Patented Transitional & Metallic P;anes in America-Vol. II featuring the plane in my collection. In addition to the plane, I also have the correspondence between the Roger K. Smith, author or PTAMPIA, and the owner of the plane at the time it was photographed for publication.
In the photograph from PTAMPIA Vol II in the background you can see the sapwood on the knob matching the actual plane in the foreground.

The handle of the Ohio 099 also features some beautiful grain.
Ohio Tool Company featured iron/cutter depth adjusters unique to their tools. Here you can see the single groove in the cutter corresponding to the flanged depth adjusting screw. This Ohio 099 is complete with a full set of factory irons, possibly the only example known. The irons were provided to the owner by Roger K. Smith in appreciation for lending the tool out for photography in PTAMPIA.
