I picked up a Rockwell 653 Versa Plane 10A 3” hand planer with a carbide spiral cutter head a few months and finally got all of the parts in for me to restore it yesterday.
I replaced all of the bearings, belt, cord, brush caps, replaced all of the screws with stainless, cleaned the housing and then buffed the entire planer to a quick somewhat mirror finish and took 250 grit sandpaper to the cutterhead to remove a little bit of rust.
I stripped the handle and dust chute, put on 2 coats of primer, 3 coats of flat black, 3 coats of high gloss black and 2 coats of clear coat.
