I recently got lucky on Craig’s List and acquired this group of tools from an estate. I got a Stanley #4, an early #4C a #191 shoulder plane, a Stanley #82 scrapper, and a Starrett #181 scrapper. I used the electrolysis method to remove rust. It worked well and didn’t cost anything. I will certainly do it again.
None of these tools has any collectable value, so I went ahead and painted the shoulder plane with Hammerite. You can see the results in picture #3.
