On a newer one it’s usually just polishing the back of the iron, cambering or relieving the edges of the iron and honing.

I don’t think I’d suggest a 5-1/4. I’d go with a regular 5 setup with a little camber to where it can rough but be dialed back a hair to do some smoothing as well.

I don’t think the defiance line is thought of highly.

As far as the Stanley smoother, I hope it’s not a blue one. I relieve the edges and put a hair of camber on my smoothers.

Take pics of the planes and show us what you have.
