Thanks for your advice. Hair dryer, no problem, nitrile gloves, no problem, brake cleaner, no problem. I'm gonna go to work on it as soon as I get it. I just bought it on gunbroker, and with Thanksgiving this week, probably won't get it until next week.Heat and complete removal of grease and oil are the difference between "cold blues don't work" and a good match to the original bluing.
I use a $16 HF heat gun for larger areas. If you have a wife or daughter in the household there's likely a hair dryer around for something the size of your project. Non-chlorinated brake cleaner in a spray can is a good degreaser.
Degrease first, then heat. I wear nitrile gloves for this kinda work. Many cold blues contain unhealthy chemicals that can penetrate your skin.
