    Seems i have an 05c, with the red paint that had turned a rusty brown. Does have a brass depth adjuster, with right hand threads. Might just make a nice “Chuting” plane out of it. Iron is a lamination, and is tapered. Takes a very nice edge.

    Nice collection and I enjoyed reading the history of Ohio Tool. I’ve recently aquired a 5 and 2- 4’s. They all seem to be ground at different angles, would you happen to know the correct angle for the iron?

    what is a good way to bring blades back to looking good when they are rusted badly?

    • take a look at my restore blog, https://timetestedtools.wordpress.com/bench-plane-restore-the-dw-way/

      there should be something that will help.

      I do this all the time as I restore old planes both wooden and metal. You can buy a product called metal prep, used by auto body shop repair. It is basically mild phosphosic acid which you can buy in more concentrated form as technical grade and dilute it yourself or just use metal prep. Soak your iron in this solution over night, or for faster action use a scrubber backed sponge and scrub the iron in a PLASTIC TUB. Wear rubber gloves and you must use a plastic tub as the acid can attack your sink unless it is stainless steel.
