After a lot of looking I finally purchased a Stanley #48. As many of you know, I look for the rust. Here is how it came.
So the first thing I did was soak it in evapo-rust. I was hoping the soaking would loosen some of the screws and parts. I had removed the knob before immersing it in the bath.
It soaked over night and in the morning I came out looking like this.
I took it completely apart and took to wire brushing all the parts.
I hit the brass nut with the buffing wheel.
I then sanded the knob, Starting with 60 grit up through 500.
I laid out the part, sharpened the irons and oiled each piece.
Now I put it all back together.
All That is left is trying it out.
After the first run I realized I had the blades in backward. Switched them around and kept on making shavings.
One more plane to add to the till.
