Plane Aid

Looking through the local San Antonio Woodworking Guild posts I noticed someone asking for a little help to bring a Plane back to life. The planes didn’t look too bad and I’ve been unable to settle into a project, so i stepped out of my comfort zone and offered to take a look. A few hours later and they were on my bench.

Looking through the planes there are two #5s, a corrugated #4, an unknown brand of Block Plane and a small plane. None of them are in terrible shape and only need a little TLC with the exception of one of the Totes. First job is to disassemble so I can go after the rust.

Getting the dirt and grime off took a few minutes with paper towels, a screw driver to scrape and a little WD-40. Next I took an oil drain pan and lined it with a garbage bag and used rust remover to take the rust off.
