Does anyone have a good paint remover for this old Black Laquer
Air craft stripper works,but is messy and takes more than one application. Media blasting is best.IMO
A brand is what I was looking for...thanks
Have used Citrustrip brand paint/varnish remover on 50 yr old enamel. Works good and smells nice.
If old Ford Gilsonite paint that stuff is tough!
Good ol' Lacquer thinner should do the trick. Stripped my model A fenders to the bare with it coupla years ago. Messy, but worked fine.
Go to Ace Hardware. They have a couple of brands that work pretty well. Cant remember the names but they work good.
I don't know if it's cheapest but it works. Lacquer thinner. It is, as Tim says, messy but I guess they all are.
Aircraft Stripper is a brand name sold by automotive paint suppliers. Its very good but use it outside with plenty of ventilation. You can get it in quarts or gallons. Don't buy more than what you need, it does not store well once opened.
I've been in the furniture refinishing business close to 40yrs I've always found products with a
methylene chloride base to work really well. Kutzit is one of my go-to's for that. You'll want plenty of fresh air though
I've read recently about using oven cleaner for paint remover, the cheap stuff from the $ store.
Haven't tried it myself yet.
What are you wanting to strip? Most hot tanks at a machine shop will remove the paint when parts are put in them. It takes off paint along with all the grease off blocks and rear end housings. My guy charges me $10.00 a part to tank stuff. Dan
