I have recently bought an old plane ( very cheap ) and would like to refurbish it.
have there been any articles covering this subject or can any one point me in the right direction please ?
many thanks in anticipation. James Sudlow

Any chance of a photo of your new acquisition?
My personal view is to do as little as possible to the plane, just what is necessary to get it producing shavings. To this end my first task would be to sharpen the blade, re-fit it & try the plane out, this will be the best guide to what needs rectifying, if anything.
Good luck with it.
