I spent 3 weeks sanding my #7 Record flat. I should have sent it to a machine shop for grinding.
I put a plate of glass large plate down, started with 80grit self stick roll, kept at it.
Yes it should be near flat. It does not need to be perfect, but the closer it is, the better it will work.
Get rid of the rust first and see what you have.

They are very good a the job… I strop after sharpening and have found that’s the key to pain free work with a handplane.
