These planes are manufactured under the US Patent: 746,285 by John W. Carlton – New Britain, CT and George E. Trask – New Britain, CT for the Union Manufacturing Co. – New Britain, CT.

A little different than the Union X Series, which were from patents from John W Carleton and George E Trask as well, but, the x series version had  locking nuts.

The 500 series version had just the lever and no locking nuts. The version without locking nuts were only used on some transitionals.
