Hi Vaughn
You''ve certainly got a knack for cleaning up old tools.......these almost look like new!
Well found, well done and keep going!

Hi Marc
Thanks very much! I am quite excited, i just received a stanley no 10 rebate plane, and i have a no6 on the way!
I'll still post before photos of the rebate, and hopefully some nice pics after the cleanup. you'll see the handle is broken.
I have a question for you, maybe the other guys will know too. I want to redo the "japanning?" on the rebate plane. is it merely black paint, or a special process such as baked enamel?
Let me know if any of you have done this before.

Hi Vaughn
Your like a kid in a sweet shop with the adults eyes blindfolded!

As far as I know, its a durable varnish over black paint.....I had restored an old vise and some G clamps and painted them with Hammerite. I'm not sure if you have it down your way but, here is the products UK home page....>> here << after I cleaned the tools with turps.
If you want to go with the right stuff, here is a page that shows you what the recipe is....
>. Japanning <<  (scroll down the page a bit ) and a great link to the book it was taken from.......>> Encyclopedia Of Practical Receipts And Processes by William B. Dick <<
 Will be great to see the images.
Good luck
