Those are some nice planes, you should get a lot of great use out of them. Restoring them will be fun, just take your time and enjoy. Thanks for the pictures, we always love the pictures.

I can't tell the exact types there... But I'd jump on that for $25.

You got you $25 worth and then some. Nice buy.
Now, how are you at sharpening?

I'd paint them their original color, most likely black.

Just a small update I just order a sand blasting gun and cabinet with media to remove some of the heavy rust on two of the planes and I started to make the new totes and knobs too. I decided to use cherry for them and the paint color I settled on is a blue similar to this one but I want something a little bit more glossy and liter in color. Anyone have any suggestions on what type of paint to use I already know I am going to spray them but should I use a rustolem type paint or would just regular rattle can paint work

I used rattle can black when I restored mine, worked just fine. With proper prep and technique it'll turn out great.

I hate signatures.

Here is what I used with good results. I used one coat of primer and two coats of paint. A sandblaster works great, but unless you have a huge air compressor it will take forever. a couple of hand planes-image-4013143772.jpg a couple of hand planes-image-1473354763.jpg a couple of hand planes-image-1183714294.jpg

Definitly use engine enamel. That is what I use for mine. I also use electrolosis to remove the rust. It works awesome and get rid of it in all the nooks and crannies. Just set it up overnight and the next day just rinse off.

My compressor is a 70 gallon I believe or somewhere around there I'll have to look when I get home from vacation so no worries there.

The sand blaster and the media I bought for it shipped today and should be here by Friday, so look out for a restoration thread for these couple of hand planes on Monday
