I wanted to introduce myself and ask a question at the same time. I am currently living in Jacksonville Florida and am just joined LJ about 4 days ago. I have had trouble getting off of the site because I am consistently looking at great projects. The other day I came across two #5 Stanly planes (type 17 and 19 I believe) for $5 total…and want to turn them into users. I have seen a lot of electrolisis work and some citric acid rehabs. Here is my question…
1. I was planning on using phosphoric acid as my deruster, is there any downside…other than the possible fumes etc…in the shop.
2. After I get the metal in good condition I was thinking of using a cold blue solution (gun bluing) to provide an extra layer of anti-rust.
Any thoughts or comments? Photos of my planes are below.
