I just wanted to show the before and after pics of the planes I received from the old family home

They all got scary sharp edges on them. Evaporust is amazing!

just so I don’t feel quite so incompetent, how many hours did you put into those beauties? They look fabulous.

Evaporust did most of the work but after stripping them and soaking in the juice, about half an hour scrubbing. Sanding the tote and knob an hour. Lapping and shaping the old irons about and hour and a half….each. I got all the work done in a week after work.

Nicely done Jumbo. I’ve dug up a handfull of family jems recently myself, including a couple Disstons. I’ve seen Evaporust on the shelves, but always thought it was a false promise. Definitely going to try it now.
