Default Re: Removing old paint from wooden hoops...

Stripper can be used without damaging the wood. Use coarse copper wool to remove loosened paint rather than a scraper to avoid gouging. I prefer a water soluble stripper also. Wear a mask, gloves and long sleeve shirt.

longjohn, glad to here you are working safer now, it's never too late to start. We need to keep you around here to help identify the old Slingys.
