I'm repainting woodwork inside a 1928 house. Some of the interior white
gloss is certainly more than 35 years old, possibly much more. I'm
stripping it in case there's lead in the paint. Some of the gloss white
paint does not soften with a hot air gun, nor Paint Panther chemical
stripper. Any suggestions to get it off? Or shall I just sand it and
take my chance on the lead.
He said the paint doesn't soften with a hot air gun. That seems wrong to
me (although I agree that a decent blow-lamp, or (easier) a propane
torch, should do it).
My hot air gun has a restrictor nozzle to get the temperature up. Don't
think I have ever needed it, though.
