I picked this up today for a decent price. Main issues are the Cat one hitch and a bent frog. Don't know if I can straighten it or not. Here's some pics:

If I can straighten/fix it, I'm thinking of making a 2 bottom for Alice. This measures 9", but the bend may be making that wrong. Thinking it's an 8". Not sure if a Brinly frog would fit it, they are $40.

My Brinly cat 0 12" plow had a bent frog.  Previous owner was pulling it with an 8N!

 

Lots of oxygen, acetylene and a big hammer got it back into usable condition.

Looks like its time for you to build a forge. Old truck brake drums work well. The easiest coal to acquire is charcoal that you sift out of the ashes from a wood stove. An old hair dryer can provide the air from underneath. Good Luck, Rick

Aaron has one out back! Just have to wait til Deer Season is over! Fun part will be getting it apart.

​A blue wrench and a big hammer will usually fix anything, one way or another.

I cut the Cat 1 hitch off this morning. Found the beam is bent also. That I can straighten, I believe. May just opt for the new frog though, it's bent pretty bad. I'll get my 10" sleeve hitch plow out and see how things look between the two.
