Planes after restoration

Plane Restoration


Stanley “Brothers In Arms” Hand Plane Restoration

This video shows the steps taken to restore two corroded Stanley Planes, a No. 4 & a No. 5 1/2.
Both Planes were severely corroded and took some cleaning up to get them to a working condition.

**The video shows the plane parts being immersed in a solution as part of the electrolysis process to remove the rusty coating from the planes.
The solution is simply water and washing soda – (sodium carbonate), mixed in a concentration of one tablespoon of sodium carbonate per 4 litres of water.
The d.c. voltage source negative is always connected to the work piece – (the plane parts in this case).
