Amazing piece of history – 70 box scraper plane, era before cardboard boxes. Just a hundred years ago, the most common packaging was a wooden box.

Simple good old cleaning
First I dismantled the blade and cleaned the plane’s head. Furthermore I cleaned the handle with a cloth and acetone.
After that I removed surface rust from a bolster, blade and small bolt.
Next step was to protect the handle and old japanning paint from further degrading. Therefore I applied a layer of homemade beeswax.
In meantime I spent some time around the blade, sharpening it and polishing it afterwards.
