Subject:
Oul for the outside of a hand plane?

AZ in Colorado Springs
I just cleaned up an old Stanley #4 that I got several years ago. Took it apart and cleaned especially all the threads and put some white grease on them.

I rubbed beeswax on the sole. The sole is ribbed, rather than smooth (don't remember the term for that).

What kind of oil do you use to wipe down the exterior surfaces?
