Spot on with the evaporust, and a softer brush.
This old #5 Bailey plane looked just like yours before evaporust.
I still need a new tote for it.
the old cap iron and blade was to far gone so I bought a new one from lee valley.

I m a fan of evaporust. Just run it (less the wood) through the dishwasher, the soak in Evapo-Rust. Go easy on wire brushing. Try plastic brush, then brass, steel only as last resort.
