I have old planes (from France, the US and Japan), marking gages and saws (Japan).
It's a pleasure to give a new life to an old tool. I did it for a plow plane.
I took appart the plane and used steelwool to remove rust, and a small metal wheel on a mini-drill to clean other metalic parts. I sharpened the 2 knifes and the blade, and oiled them right after. As for the body, I used a scrapper to clean it.
