I have several Stanleys…45s and 55s. Currently working on the restoration of my Type 7B, 45 from 1897. I have the original chestnut box.. the original 20 cutters, the plane and other attachments. The blades were easy.. a brass brush on my drill took off the light surface rust and left the patina… I’m more concerned with the plane body and other attachments that appear to have been nickel plated but are quite dirty. Did not want to use the wire brush on those items. Does anyone have the proper way to handle the restoration.

Tooth brush and tooth paste !
Or chrome polish and tooth brush.
