This is a Winchester model 3040 transition plane from a garage sale. Who knew Winchester made planes? I didn’t. Google did not produce much information, but one post said he was pretty sure the Winchester planes were made by Sargent. It has a really good blade. After a good sharpening it pulls off wispy see-through shavings.
There was hardly any japanning left after the electrolysis scrub down so I sprayed it with Rust-Oleum. Gave the wood part a light sanding and applied BLO. I think it’s beautiful.
