Winchester Woodworking Planes

Winchester 3063 Dado PlaneWinchester #3063 1" Dado/Rabbeting Plane   Sargent made this plane for Winchester during their short lived foray into the consumer tool market back before the onset of the great depression.  Through a series of marketing missteps and because of the worsening economy during this period, Winchester who was in partnership with Simmons Hardware, had to give up on their plans to dominate this portion of the consumer market.  This plane is in like new condition, with the exception of the cutter, which the previous owner has modified on the top to serve as a moulding cutter of some sort.  By doing this he has lost about 1/4 of height to the top of the cutter and has made the top of the cutter round.  The original working end appears to have never been sharpened.  The japanning is well over 97% and the nickers are as new.  You will not be disappointed, it is the nicest one I have ever seen.

Good . . . . .$ 295.00             SOLD




Winchester #3201  (#78) Rabbit PlaneWinchester #3201  (#78) Rabbit Plane As is the case with most Winchester tools and planes, this one has seen considerable use.  It has approx. 50% of the japanning, and a rich even patina.  There are no casting problems but there are some bangs and dings as is to be expected.  This plane was made by Sargent and I believe has the proper fence and rod.  I could not find the wing nut for the depth stop in the box where I got this, and so had to replace it with another.  Metal bodied planes marked Winchester are always a challenge to find, and this one is no exception.

Good . . . . .$ 145.00            SOLD




Winchester Arms Co. No. 3075 Scraper PlaneWinchester Arms Co. No. 3075 Scraper Plane   Winchester Repeating Arms Co foray into the tool market was quick and eventful.  They came close to going bankrupt over it.

Winchester did not actually make their line of tools but rather contracted out their orders to other tool makers like Stanley, Ohio Tool, Sargent, and others and then relied on their name recognition, reputation and slogans like "Good As The Gun" to succeed.  That was not enough and Winchester pretty quickly got out of the tool and hardware business.     Nice!!

Good + . . . . . $40.00      SOLD!!






Winchester #3093 Block PlaneWinchester #3093 Block Plane   OK.  Well marked proper cutter.  

Good . . . . . . . $20.00     SOLD!!









Double End Duplex Block PlaneWinchester 3092 Block Plane   Used but OK.  Different, and Unusual.   

Good . . . . . . . $25.00     SOLD!!








Winchester 3091 Block PlaneWinchester 3091 Block Plane (Stanley # 103) This Winchester block plane is in used but sound condition.  Good cutter w/ great Winchester stamp.  Nice throat   A hard to find size adjustable block plane by the most famous gun maker the world has ever known. 

Good + . . . . . $ 30.00     SOLD!!







Winchester #3080 Scraper Plane   Sargent made this plane for Winchester during their short lived foray into the consumer tool market back before the onset of the great depression.  Through a series of marketing missteps and because of the worsening economy during this period, Winchester who was in partnership with Simmons Hardware, had to give up on their plans to dominate this portion of the consumer market.  During various periods they had either Stanley, Sargent, or Ohio making tools for them, and then relying on their reputation and marketing to allow them to sell these products with their name and logo on them.  This plane has been repainted and the sides lapped, but it still looks good.  The cutter is stained and pitted, but it is original, and with a loop you can make out the Winchester name in script on it across the middle.  All Winchester planes are hard to find, and especially so the scrapers.

Good . . . . .$ 150.00             SOLD




Winchester #3058 Spoke Shave     There are some Winchester tools you see pretty regularly, but their spoke shaves are not one of them.  I believe this was made by Stanley, probably back in the 20's when Winchester had their line of hardware stores around the country.  It was short-lived, and most legitimate Winchester tools are pretty hard to find these days.

Good . . . . .$ 75.00             SOLD





Winchester #3 Size #3004 Corrugated Smooth Plane by SargentWinchester #3 Size #3004 Corrugated Smooth Plane by Sargent  Winchester entered the tool market under the assumption that with their reputation that they could and would succeed in this new non gun venture.  It almost bankrupted them and they dropped the entire idea, reorganized the company, and returned their focus to guns which they made and knew.

Winchester did not actually make their lines of planes and other tools. They farmed it out to companies like Stanley, Sargent and others.  Stanley made planes were designated as W3 or whatever the size was.  They were a Bedrock design.  Sargent made Winchester planes were marked with a 4 digit number beginning with a 3 as this one is marked behind the frog.  Their planes were actually well received and sold pretty well.  They are usually found well used and are seldom found in this nice condition.  The logo or ditty Winchester used to market their line or tools was "As Good as the Gun"

The condition of this 3 size corrugated bottom plane is like new.   A super piece!

Fine . . . . . .$ 125.00        SOLD!!





Winchester # W 9 1/2 Block Plane by OhioWinchester # W 9 1/2 Block Plane  This is a very nice example of a hard to find Winchester block plane.  It was made for them by either Ohio Tool co. or Sargent.  Winchester did not actually make their line of planes and other tools, they farmed it out to companies like Stanley, Sargent, Ohio Tool Co. and others.  The lateral is marked with the W 91/2 and I believe it is by Ohio because of the round handy features on the side but it might be a Sargent product.  It is in very nice condition with a full length properly marked cutter.  It will make a fine addition to the Winchester tool or gun collection!  Good as the gun!!  Different and nice!!

Good +  . . . . . . $ 45.00        SOLD!




Winchester # 3011 (5 1/2) Extra Large Jack PlaneWinchester # 3011 (5 1/2) Extra Large Jack Plane   This plane was made by Sargent for Winchester.   It is in beautiful original condition.  All Proper, and all very nice!!  As the famous Winchester Repeating Firearms Co logo went, "As Good As the Gun". 

Fine . . . . .  $125.00   SOLD!!






Winchester W5 Jack Plane (Stanley Bedrock 605) Winchester W5 Jack Plane (Stanley Bedrock 605) This Winchester jack plane is in used but sound condition.  It was made by Stanley and based on a Bedrock plane design with the same milled frog mating design.  It dates from the 20's or a bit before.  Replaced cutter.  Wood OK.  Nice throat.  Minor pitting and a couple stray scratches.  Overall nice.   A plane offered by the most famous gun maker the world has ever known. 

Good  . . . . . $60.00      SOLD!!

Union # 2 Smooth PlaneUnion # 2 Smooth Plane   This is a hard to find version of a Union #2.  The bed is marked behind the frog unlike most seen.   The Mahogany handle and low front  knob are nice.  The lateral is stamped Pat Apl'd For.  The cutter is full length and looks to be thicker /  heavier than the norm. The original japanning is about 90% or better.  The throat is proper and has not been opened.  A pretty nice example.

Fine. . . . .  $245.00        SOLD!!

Union Tool Co. X-5A Large Jack PlaneUnion Tool Co. X-5A Large Jack Plane  Union Tool Co was another CT based tool maker who went up against Stanley trying to compete with the king.  They offered a line similar to Stanley's along with a few different ideas in an attempt to get some market share.   They were around for a while but in the end were bought out by Stanley.  Their line of vertical post X planes was one of those attempts at offering a different product.  They are interesting, but not one of the greatest designs compared to say Stanley's Bed Rock line.  Not rare, except for the # 1 size they made, but not common either.

This example is the size of a 5 1/2 and is in overall nice condition noting the top of the handle has gone missing. It is one of the harder sizes to find.  Nice.

Good + . . . . . . $ 65.00    SOLD!!






Union Tool Co. # 4 1/4 Smooth Plane w/ Adjustable FrontUnion Tool Co. # 4 1/4 Smooth Plane w/ Adjustable Front  This Union Tool Co. plane, marked # 4 1/4 was one of Union Tool Co.'s more unusual design planes.  At first glance it looks like a typical size #4 plane, but this version has an adjustable front piece like a 9 1/2  block plane or first model #10 rabbit plane.  It is so unusual that no mention of, or examples can be found using a Google search.  

This plane is in overall nice condition noting a small chip in the throat.  Nice.

Good + . . . . . . $ 295.00    SOLD!!

Union X #4 Smooth PlaneUnion X #4 Smooth Plane   Union Tool Co. competed with Stanley as best they could until they were bought out by Stanley in the 20's.  In addition to the line of planes that mimicked Stanley's they also introduced some ideas of their own into the market. One of those was their X series of bench planes.   The #4 size is in nice condition, and all proper.  The collector applied his signature coat of gloss lacquer to protect it.  A nice plane!!

Millers Falls Tool Co. Woodworking Planes

Millers Falls # 209 Smooth Plane  Millers Falls Tool Co. introduced this unusual finish smooth plane in 1938 to commemorate their 70th anniversary.  It is highlighted on the cover of that catalog.  Millers Falls is well known for their innovative designs and attempts to carve out some market share from the king of the pack, Stanley by introducing new and different designs for their line of tools.  A few years after this they introduced and offered what has become known as the "Buck Rodgers" line of planes and tools that also have a very unusual look to them.   In general Millers Falls produced a very nice product, and went a step further when they introduced this model with its clear Red "Permaloid" plastic handles, and Chromium finish on the exposed metal parts.  It does stand out, and has a look above the others.    The previous owner did etch his name very lightly into the side rail. You can hardly see it.   Other than that it is near mint and looks to have never been used.  Nice!!

Fine  . . . . . $375.00        SOLD!




Millers Falls # 85 Duplex Rabbit / Dado PlaneMillers Falls # 85 Duplex Rabbit / Dado Plane   This is Millers Falls version of the Stanley #78.  I had to install a new lever cap as the original broke.  That involved a bit of file work to get the slot in the cap to work..  The owner just put it up on the shelf and moved on.  It looks to have seen little use.   

Good + . . . . .$ 95.00      SOLD!!






Millers Falls # 17 Block PlaneMillers Falls # 17 Block Plane   Very Nice!!!   90% or better of the original japanning.  Millers Falls put out a quality product that rivaled Stanley products in their hey-day.  This 7" block plane plane is identical to the popular Stanley 15 block plane and has seen little to no use.

Good + . . . . . $35.00       SOLD!!








Millers Falls #07 Skew Block PlaneMillers Falls #07 B Skew Block Plane  The 07 plane was Millers Falls answer to the Stanley #140 skew block plane.  The adjuster is a different design and that is probably the B reference stamped on the side The condition is as nice as one could ask for.  Nice!!
