    That was a tough stain.

    I took most of your advice. Polishes and toothpaste with a toothbrush cleaned it up some. I started gentle and upped the aggression. I ended up using lapping paper to sand it and the high spots lightened up.

    Put it on a better blade, a Morley.

    Looks good. You can also paint all the details with some proven paint and wipe the clean. It will leave paint in all the details and add a lot of depth. They look great as is too.

    It looks great, nice job.
    People wonder where the time goes, I wonder where it comes from.
