Another nice plane. Did you reglue the tote or is it just held in with screws?

For what I can see that’s 2 different No 5’s right….? very nicely done, what did you used to de-rust the metal pieces?

Hey Bern.

wondering if you re-painted the interior of the plane and if so, what did you use?

Thanks, Steve
