    My point was that with many parts I do, I cannot use a sander. Do you understand that? There are way to many crooks and crannies to get into... a sand just wouldnt do the trick.

    I bet you would spend more than 30 min of sanding on many parts I do... 30 min dip in a stripper and its done. And I can do other things at the same time. Thats called time management.
    Your right, my bad I thought you started the thread.

    But you are wrong one one part, I don't spend that kind of time stripping parts...

    I have used all the methods mentioned and a few more. Sometimes a combination of them depending on the part. I've found that no one way will work best with all applications. There are just too many coating types and different substrates to make it a possibility.

    BTW you did ask what "we" used, I tell you and you come off with an attitude like that, your the one that wasted a day on something that would have taken a few minutes to fix...

    " What is the most brutally efficient method YOU use to remove stubborn finishes from your parts, "

    I'd like to know what it is, and have it for everyone to see, to avoid spending an entire day [email protected] around with 2 stinkin parts like i did.

    And what happens when you have intricate parts with lots of groove and such.

    It wouldnt be so bad if you didnt have to buy 5 gallons at a time!

    I am having trouble talking myself into spending more than $200 (after shipping is included) to see if I like it. Would be nice to try it out first in a smaller quantity.

    You could try d-zolve, it has no meth. chloride. One stripper you can use at room temp. one you have to heat. They sent me two samples to try for free.

    Thats a great idea I will try that. I just finished stripping a bathroom mirror frame the same way. My brother brought a wire type mirror frame with several small leaves in thin metal it was powder coated black and the round rods and for the framing and design are very time consuming to blast and the powder coating makes it more difficult. This thing is now coated in a white ash with no warping including the leaves all in less than 5 min.

    this might not be a bad idea at all. basically you have come up with a burn off oven but with out the heat soak. i am interested in more feedback as well.
