Well I can tell you one thing. It is indeed a plane. The lever cap seems to have beveled edges and a two hole locking design, that to me looks like the spitting image of my number 5 Craftsman plane. Although I can't really see that much in the picture. Looks sort of like a mahogany handle so again I'm thinking Craftsman, it's a smooth bottom so it's fairly generic. Sorry but I'm really not that much help. I am curious on your plans for it though. You planning on restoring it?

Perhaps made by the same Acme company that shipped stuff to Wylie Coyote. Just order it and 5 seconds later it arrives from a guy on a scooter..
There is a site out there somewhere that helps identify old planes.
Try Google for "wood plane identifier" .. I had it bookmarked once upon a time on my old tablet..

I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.
Impressive, huh?

I did restore it to working condition. The only thing is the iron is shot. I'm trying to find a replacement for it.

As your plane appears to be a "generic brand", consider measuring the width, length, thickness of the "old iron", and go on line or to local tag/garage sales to find a matching replacement. Be safe.
