Six years later I finally got around to it. Started with 2 more turpentine baths, removed remainder of broken tote, clamped and glued crack on base of the smaller plane, created new totes from some aged cherry, cleaned metal parts with Evaporust, applied some rust preventative, made a new wedge for larger plane from oak, applied two coats of BLO, and buffed out with Beal system.

Right now they are decorations on a special shelf in my shop. Plan to tune them up when I finish a big office remodel project.
