Just picked up a 10" Ohio Steel Fabricators plow in what I consider good to very good shape. My question, has anyone ever modified the adjuster screw to a rotatable handle similar to ones on the Brinly. Or should it be left as is for what ever collectable value it might have?

I would upload a pic. for idears but the ADD A FILE thing won't let me, odd, never did that to me before,
a little cutting and welding and yes it can and has been done before, if i had the money i would go after a brinley and leave that one, in the end it is up to you,

You could add a crank style to it & not alter the plow itself at all. Could be put back to original condition in a matter of minutes.

I had the mental pic too, but haven't had time to put it on paper to be understood. You likely have it nailed down.

If you are referring to the sleeve hitch area, yes it has three holes. Very much like the brinly plows.

i would weld a handle to a piece of threaded rod and be done with it, just keep the original pieces for resale.

Well I was busy today working on the plow mod. Welded 4 short pieces of 1/4 inch angle to the two nuts to make an assembly to keep the nuts from turning and allow them to move the plow mounting arm. Jamed to other nuts to keep the threaded rod in place. Added a handle. Only thing remaining is to finish off the welds, cut the treaded rod to length, buff and paint. I at least have the concept worked out. Seems to do what I want. I can just put the old threaded rod in with the nuts and it's back to original. Yeah!!! Now for pictures.

You could do exactly the same thing I did to mine. I would say that your plow is a Ohio Steel Fabrication but with out the removable sleeve hitch. They weld it on solid and added more holes to accomplish the same adjustment as mine. I have to remove and flip it over to get more adjustment where as you just put it in a different hole. I nice thing about the mod I did is I can put the handle forward for the ride on tractor or to the rear for the walk behind.

Mine will be OK for all I do with it mostly it sets on a self I may plow with it one day just to see how it does.
If you are wondering why I don't use it I was just counting today I have 24 plows I guess I will need to
plow a line and trade to the next plow so I can use them all

What you made looks like it will do well. And you did not trash the plow to do it

Do you have any 12 inch sleeve hitch plows?

I have 2 12" Brinly sleeve hitch plows most of what you see will be the 10"plows
the 12's and 8's are a little harder to find
