Is this a tool gloat? I picked up some Stanley hand planes from a guy who had been letting them rust in his basement for years. A No 4, two. 5's two 7's , two 78 bull nose, and a weird 113 ,and some small block planes. There was even a fairly large wooden one. I believe from all the youtube stuff I've been watching that, with only one exception, the original irons ans stuff are in them. The exception has a much newer lever cap. And I really can tell that the rust is not that bad. So I will try to restore them. I offered $50 and he accepted right away. Maybe I over paid. (But the antique places up here (Northwest CT) absolutely charge much more.) Anyway, I am trying to decide between Evapo Rust goop and electrolis. And , if I go with the latter, what size battery charger do I need?
