Gabriel hooked me up with a FB group to buy and sell old tools. (I don't know what in the world would make a guy want to sell his old tools but that's a topic for another day.) I had to leave it because my willpower is weak and I don't remember the name of it now, but those guys have some seriously cool stuff.

Best I stay far away. I’m sure I would be convincing myself that I “need” this or that.

I did a count a while back. I have more than 25 hammers I could easily lay my hands on that day in the garage without digging around in the truck or the camper.

The Frog on my #5 was packed full of grease.
Is it supposed to be like that?
Or was it a precaution taken for long term storage?

None of my planes are packed with grease, nothing that can contaminate the wood. I’d say it was meant to be a preservative.

My #5 Bailey has a great deal of surface rust, too much for sandpaper (and for some curious reason, both wet and dry and Garnet paper is unobtainable locally) so I hauled out the big guns---a grinder with a wire wheel---to take off the rust.
I am not a grinder enthusiast but my dad, a dental technician by trade, was and left me two motors packed away in the garage.
A very high end Baldor, which was the hardest to reach, and a General Electric motor that looked home cobbled up, nailed to a 2x6 chunk of wood which I was able to reach with little effort.
So the GE it was.
BTW my dad would never call these grinders, he'd call them lathes, which is dental techspeak for grinders
I asked him once how you put a piece of wood in one and he smiled, replying "Son, we haven't made false teeth out of wood since George Washington's time" :lol:

Anyway, the wire wheel did a fine job getting the rust off :D
Yes, I wore eye protection----3M OTG I picked up from the ACE yesterday.
I wiped the Stanley down with 3 in 1 to keep it from rusting until I can find some garnet paper to flatten out the soul and the iron, and set about cleaning up the GE lathe to put back in the garage and the more I cleaned it up, the more I was impressed. It took half a can of aerosol Nitro Solvent to remove the solidified oil from the case.
I've been trying to use up my aerosol solvents as I don't care much for breathing them---fortunately I was working outdoors on the patio table.

One of the bearings was, through the housing, warm to the touch, so I added some 3 in 1 as that's what I had on hand.
I cleaned of the data plate to I could read the details. t turns out that it is a 1/3hp thermal protected utility motor, 1,725 rpm 5.6amp made in 'murica.
Cool! 8)

Some 60-100 grit on a piece of granite or glass will do wonders for the flattening the sole. It's a little extra work, but I've used that method successfully. Looking forward to seeing yours finished up. Be sure to take some pics along the way.

These are the ones that get used and that I try to keep decently sharp, a tedious undertaking with some this old iron.
