Default Paint stripper

Well its been a week of learning and now come to conclusion that Nitromors is crap.... For half the price I got a tin of standard paint stripper that actually stripped the paint....

I also found out that some places are not allowed to sell Nitromors because of the chemicals it has... Well thats good because it don't work anyway

The original Nitromors was so good you could disolve the plastic potting around rec/regs to see what components they had inside..

It would seem some laquers are resistant to these strippers and need mechanical roughing up to let the stripper attack the underlying paint. The active ingredient is the same in nitromorse as several of their rivals that are far cheaper, but a hot air gun is cheaper still, ditto blowtorches. I did find however that the fumes from paint stripper did leave me feeling like I had flue, as did the fumes off blowtorching the paint as it inevitably caught fire a bit. Mechanical removal or heat are both more cost effective and faster, those hard scotch pad style disks for a grinder rule the roost for paint removal.
