Rusted of antique iron Restoration

I discovered this very rusty coal iron on one junk exchange. I liked it, so I bought it. It was another renovation challenge for me.
I brought her home and I was looking forward to the reconstruction. The iron was very rusty, incomplete and damaged. Inside it is numbered 5 and the star of David. The iron comes from the 19th century. Scales 2.8 kg. Ironing had to be very exhausting for women.

Something from history:

An iron is a device for ironing or smoothing fabric at high temperature and pressure. Ironing works by releasing the bonds in the fibers of the polymer-forming fibers due to temperature. When the fibers are hot, they straighten under the pressure of iron and retain their shape after cooling. Some fabrics like cotton also need water.

Initially, the linen was pressed or rolled, and hot iron appeared in the 15th century. In the past, iron looked like a glazed metal block with a handle. After heating, for example, on a kitchen stove plate, the thermal inertia of the metal block allowed for a few minutes to maintain a sufficient ironing temperature. Star of David (מָגֵן דָּוִד, magen David, literally "Shield of David") was often identified with the Solomon Seal until the end of the 17th century and was graphically depicted as either a six-pointed or a five-pointed star. It was only from the beginning of the 18th century that the differentiation of the linguistic tendency became definite, according to which the term "Solomon's Seal" refers only to the pentagram, while "the Shield of David" to the hexagram. Since then, the six-pointed star of David is considered not only a Jewish symbol, but also a symbol of Judaism and also the State of Israel on whose flag it appears. As such, the symbol can equilibrate in the vertical intersection of two separate triangles.

The triangle with the top up indicates fire and masculine energy.
The triangle opposite is the water and the female energy.
Their bases symbolize air and earth.

Iron refinement was a construction where a small charcoal fireplace was placed on the "foot" to accommodate several hot coals to maintain the high temperature of the iron without having to close it at any time. Another alternative was the iron where the alcohol was melted.

In the twentieth century, iron was widespread, where an electrically heated spiral with a power of several hundred watts was inside and was supplied from the grid. The first electric irons were discovered in the 1890s. Later, a thermoregulator was added to the iron to maintain the desired temperature at several degrees Celsius and a humidifier (steam iron) appeared in the iron. (Wikipedia source)

If you have any questions about the process, use machines or other stuff, ask me in the comments. I'm trying to answer everyone and as soon as possible.

I'm sorry about my bad English, it's not my language.

I'm uploading videos about restoring mechanical things. I'm uploading videos about restoring old wooden things.

If you like this renewal, share and order :)

Thanks for your advice on how to improve this channel!
