This week we were among the lucky few that received a Christmas letter from Bennie Madigan. At 115 years old she is not only the eldest in our home state of Massachusetts, but also number 5 in the world and number 4 in the US. Her new motto is ” I intend to live forever. So far so good.” Merry Christmas Aunt Bennie and Merry Christmas to all our readers too.

Cleaning vintage lock & ignition keys with Wenol polish

October 26, 2014 · Filed Under Wenol · Comment 

Came across a tin container of vintage keys at a tag sale this weekend. Today we used some Wenol metal polish to clean up a No 60 Ford Model T key , a no 2926 Master key made in Milwaukee,  an Eagle Lock Co key made in Terryville, Conn and an old Lane Chest key. As you can see from the before and after pictures a little dab of Wenol red polish and a rather aggressive wipe with a microfiber cloth is all that was needed to take decades of crud off these keys and make them look new. Just for a little added zing we did do a last rub with Wenol blue polish to put on a show room like finish. If you would like to buy some Wenol red or blue for yourself, please click here to purchase it from our recommended supplier. The are running a special limited time offer on a tube of each Wenol red & blue which you can get by clicking here.
