Our condo was originally built in 1950 and renovated this century. The back door seems to be original, and you can image after 66 years just how many layers of paint it’s collected. Removing these layers takes more than elbow grease. We had to pull out the big guns. Well, one gun…a heat gun.
This video says it all.
In just a few seconds at 950 degrees, the paint bubbled and scraped off easily. But be warned, if your hand passes near that gun, you’ll certainly drop it like it’s hot.
