Got a Winchester 3005. For 5$ at an estate sale. Its just the body and assembly. Found lever cap on ebay for 18$. Just need blade and chip breaker. Thoughts on this anyone?

I just found out what it is after cleaning some dirt and gunk off. Dont know much about them. Seems pretty solid. Will need to get some evapo rust for sure.

I almost bought one off a guy selling all his tools at a moving sale, but I didn’t need it, and it had a cracked tote and needed some TLC. He wanted $30, so I passed. If I needed a good worker that looks like it would have made a good solid worker though. Seemed just as good as a Stanley, just not as popular.

These sometimes command a higher price than equivalent Stanleys, for two reasons: 1) “Winchester” branded planes never sold in the same numbers as Stanleys (and thus are just plain scarcer); and 2) they are coveted by collectors of all things “Winchester”

In the end, the fact is these planes were simply re-branded Stanleys or Sargents.

The 3005 were made by Sargent. So most Sargent parts should work if you want to get it working. If you want to get it original that’s different. The Stanleys were bedrock style frogs. They are marked with a W and number of the plane.
