Topic tags/keywords: stanley 45 45 no 45 cleaning tip tips question trick advice resource

Hello, I am brand new here so I have not had time to sift through all the forum entries. I recently purchase a Stanley 45, and was wondering if there was a good way of sprucing up the nickel plating? I tried steel wool, which got off the .5 percent of rust that was on it. It has about 85 percent nickel still on it and just want a little bit of a shine for it. Thanks guys.

Howdy, I’m brand new here myself. But to answer your question Garratti, the lost plating is gone, however you could potentially visit you’re local coin shop and ask for a nickel cleaner (the indian-head nickels were nickel) and depending on the shop they may have it. Although I would suggest you just polish it lightly with a cloth, lest you loose some plating.

Ok, I had no intention of making it look brand new, I plan on using it, just wanted it to look a little bit better. Any recommendations on polish?
