    I was never interested in hand planes until a few weeks ago I bought a dollar store chinese block plane to chamfer corners like some guys do on DE-film.
    And I was amazed at the possibilities it offers, for small work it can do the job of a jointer. And since a noisy, dust making jointer will never fit in my shop, I decided to look for a decent quality used Stanley plane, since the chinese one is really crappy.
    Beginner's luck (or me being the village's idiot, that remains to be seen) the only plane available in my price range was this Stanley No 3 type 10 (made in 1907-1909) that the seller didn't overpriced it as a "collectible" because he had no clue it is a Stanley, he thought the maker was Bailey.
    That's how I ended up with this gem, and will restore her to a working order. I don't plan to make this plane museum quality but I'll try not to ruin her, in case someone smarter than me wants to restore her another one hundred years from now.

I restored my old stanley a year ago. Mild rust removed with vinegar. The only machine I used was an electric toothbrush to get the crud out and clean up the stanley logoout and polish the brass (no wire brush for me!) Everything else with wet/dry emery paper finishing with extra fine and oil. High Quality black paint. 4 coats ot boat lacquer and sanding on the wooden parts. Professionally sharpened. Sweet as a nut, guys. It ain't a DC3, but sure looks nice

Just know if you use the apple cider vinegar... It will stink. Bad. I just bought a stanley/bailey No 5 plane. It was rustier than this. I soaked everything in the vinegar outside for 24 hours. Then the next day lightly brushed with a steel as well as a brass brush. The results are phenomenal.

I know you stated at the beginning that you didn't really know what you are doing and god it showed.  Please if you are going to do clean it any further DONT use that wire brush again.  I collect and sell old tools,  you need to get you some EVAPO-RUST,  yes it is an actual product.  It will clean off all that surface rust with out any issue, and with out the need of ANY wire brushes.  if you can not get your hands on Evapo-Rust, soak the parts in white vinegar and water mix.. takes a bit longer than the rust remover but gets the job done.  After you get it all gleaned and dried off.  then put some 3in1 oil or mineral spirits on it with a soft paint brush.  if you  have any questions please write me or do some reading.

when you take the rust off with a wire wheel you strip off the patina, which in it self keeps the rust off. simply is makes care of your tools easier.

With a cracked tote (handle) the plane is of no interest to collectors anymore. I would say overall that plane is in bad condition too. At least you did not seem to run into any cracks in the casting. But the Japanning (paint) is gone, and it was very rusty too. As you noted that plane iron is also worn down to nothing. For the condition of the plane, and your intended use, I have no problem with your wire wheel method of cleaning it up. I'd have done the same. You have to get rid of that loose rust for the tool to be useful again. I'd say if you ever do it again soak the plane in a good rust penetrant before you disassemble it (no, WD-40 does not count as a good rust penetrant - WD-40 is a great rust inhibitor though). Because if you do break any of those screws they are very strange tap sizes. So extremely difficult to fix. I have seen Stanley #3 hand planes mint in box going for about $25. So you may have overpaid a bit for yours. In that condition I wouldn't pay more than $5. $1-$3 being a better deal. Really with the iron so worn I don't think I'd go to $5.

Thank you for your well documented input! I agree with everything you say. About the price, I live in a strange country where income is low and prices are high. For example an almost ruined, rusted, no motor wood lathe goes for more than a thousand bucks. A cast iron Craftsman table saw is about the same. Hand tools older than 20 years are regarded as high collectible items by those selling them and with no interest by those who actually use tools. I was lucky the plane only said Bailey on the casting, if the Stanley logo would've been visible the price would be $100 or more.

Probably, when I get to finish the plane. Right now it is in working order, after the first part restoration, and I don't find it pressing to finish it. But I'll probably do it someday. I've learned my lessons about two part videos tho :) Life gets in the way sometime!

Electrolisys removes metal, it is the transfer of metals by transfer from diode to anode or vice versa. I do not believe it is a lot of metal but that is what it does. I have seen copper pipes so thin they felt and looked like paper.All the best, Edgar

Some hardasses in the comments here. You'd think this was about restoring Apollo 11 gear. Stanley made millions of these and even if the 'correct' methods aren't used it's almost impossible to fuck these up beyond repair. Take a lot more than a wire wheeling to break these after a century.

+The Small Workshop Actually, s0nnyburnett's right. To generate the kind heat needed to warp cast iron with a wire wheel you'd really have to be leaning into it for many, many seconds, like a full minute. Running a wire wheel over cast isn't the same as using an abrasive. White vinegar is excellent for removing rust.

Vor 3 years

+s0nnyburnett Well, to be fair they are kinda right, electrolysis would work much better. Also, while these planes are not rare, I bet I have the only one in my part of the world. I hunt vintage american tools and only managed to see this one in the four years I've been looking. Plenty of those made in the 70's but none this old.

It is too bad you did not do a bit of research first. Did you know that you could soak the entire plane, without the handles, for three or four days in pure vinegar and every bit of rust would have dissolved, the most you would have had to do was to rub the rust with your fingers and the plane would have looked like new. The only reason I mention it, you have scraped away metal that will not be replaced. Since it was your first rusty project I would still give you a b on your project. Overall you did a good job!

We are still waiting on the order. I'll probably have to finish the plane with the old blade in place, then replace it when the new one arrives.

+The Small Workshop Electrolysis works very nicely. I've used it for a lot of different things including hand planes, combination squares, and other measuring and marking tools. It works great on bolts, nuts and screws, too. I shared the technique with a friend and he is doing various lawn tractor and small engine parts in a 55 gallon drum(plastic drum). I also like using a citric acid bath. Not as messy as electrolysis.

+yuval lahav I've thought the same, but while researching the restoration project I've seen some videos with people using wire brush with amazing results. Mine weren't that great, so I might try some electrolysis.
