I am not sure if I will do all of it electroliysis. Just didn't feel like doing it any other way LOL. I might leave the painted parts as is and get the rust of in a more traditional manner.Woo hoo, looking good. :clap:
I love seeing someone trying their hand at a restore. Even better if I inspired the person. :icon_smile:
This should clean up easily.
The casting looked more dirty than rusty. The electrolysis is likely to remove the paint.
The sole looks like someone used the plane on painted wood. I have had some planes with paint streaks on the sole. So far this has been easy to remove.
I am looking forward to the progress pictures.
I have not tried painting over the factory jappaning so I am not sure how well the new paint will adhere.I was wondering if it would be easier to get all of the paint of and start from scratch or leave the existing paint on. It is scratched amd flaked in some places.
This is the paint I was referring to earlier. It is the same paint as on your No. 7. You should be able to find at a local auto-parts store, e.g., Advance Auto.I recommend Dupli-Color Engine Enamel DUPDE1635 Ford Semi Gloss Black spray paint.
This cleaned up very well. :thumbsup:Well,
Woke up this morning and took out the body. The rust was all gone and a quick 1 minute scrubbing and rinsing pulled the paint right off. Even in most of the nno and crannies. I used a small screwdriver to flake off a few small flakes in a corner.
Frog goes in next!
