    Wooden Plane Restoration

    Thanks very much guys, this is just the type of info I was looking for. So regarding the restoration, I will clean up the irons as mentioned, and for the plane bodies a wipe down with boiled linseed oil. I would imagine some of them are that dry that they may need a more than one application...
