Half way through the restoration of the Stanley 4 1/2H and you wouldn’t believe how easily the rust came off. It was like a thick plume and came off with a Stanley blade. I wish that I had done a video of it, as it was a joy to behold. I weighed the plane and on average it is a good 6 ozs heavier than the rest of my Stanley 4 1/2s. The normal Stanley is a good heavy plane in it’s own right and the extra 6 ozs would have given it a much heavier feel.
