Mike it is a #3 bench plane I can find no marking in the framework or frog

Walt, I mess around with around with Sargent hand planes. That said, I can replicate most Sargents, IF the tote & knob threading has not been bastardized into something like a 1/4-20 (more frequent than one would think). I can probably replicate the steel shafts (13/32”) AND BRASS IF you now exactly what you need. IF the threading has been changed, then I need to know that in order to make adjustments.

Bottom line, if you can and know what you need, then do the eBay thing to acquire what you need. I am not into profiteering, but do understand that one-off parts get expensive quickly. send me an email at mike at horizontalheavens dot com and lets talk.
