If memory serves me correct a V Logo Iron, Again no quotes I’m more of a Millers Falls fanatic and don’t have all the type studies memorized by heart on the stanley side. I do sell quite of few Stanleys though so I have to double check the type studies to make sure the buyer is getting whats being advertised. The vinegar was to clean up the brass. Yeah don’t dip the wood in vinegar!!!!! haha. I typically will use vinegar for a very short period on the smaller parts nuts washers that kind of thing it helps loosen the corrosion a little and makes it easier to get the surface super clean but I always follow up the vinegar with dawn dish soap and a tooth brush to keep from over doing it (the acid in vinegar will keep going even if you rinse it off you have to neutralize it and wash it off again my experience)

For getting the paint off the handles I’d use a card scraper and sandpaper gently not a stripper (tends to discolor stuff)

-- its better to plan on the task at hand than actually doing it........ You look smarter.
