Stanley 46 – Refurbished

I am very pleased with these results!

After a soak in Evaporust it became evident that there were pin holes throughout the nickel plating.  There was a fair bit of rust hiding under the nickel!

Since this plane is going to be USED, not collected, I decided to go for it and remove all the nickel in order to get the rust in its entirety.

A very light sanding on the tote and front knob followed by several coats of thinned shellac.
