The blade was slightly rusty as was the sole. There were minor chips in the blade and it obviously needed sharpening. So I sharpened it.

I reviewed a number of YouTube videos on setting up and restoring planes. What I don't know is how important some of the finer details are.

For example, how polished does the sole need to be? And how flat? Seems to me it would be acceptable to have a slight hollow in the sole, but perhaps the area right at the mouth is important.
