I’ve been refurbishing some old stanley planes over the past few months. I always reference YouTube whenever I’m entering into new activites. On the videos I view on the topic, I keep hearing that pitting is a deal-breaker for hand plane restoration.
This is not logical to me when I think of corrugated planes. I mean, if the bearing surface of the plane is generally intact, is this really any different functionally than a corrugation? Granted, pitting is unsightly, and could cause damage if the corner is sharp. Otherwise, I can see no reason to let a $5 bargain slip. Am I missing something here?
Thanks for any input.
