Welcome to the slippery slope of hand planes. Here's some tune up info. I wash parts in degreaser to remove dirt etc, rinse with water, do some wire wheel work for heavier rust, soak in Evaporust to convert rust in all the unreachable areas, then tune up. Even if that plane doesn’t make a great smoother it’s usable for prepping surfaces for a smoother.
