Response to Re: Using Easy-Off Oven Cleaner as a paint remover...?

Needed to take the paint off of two wheel assemblies for Tamiya's 48th SdKfz 251 / rockets, and from the empennage of Tamiya's 48th He-219. All parts had been painted years ago, so the stuff was very "cured." Took a standard cereal bowl and dumped the parts therein, started loading up the bowl with EO. Had standard latex surgical gloves on, the thin kind, and they kept the chemicals off of me. Had the empennage in the bowl leading edge down, so I was able to fill the bowl with EO to the point that it completely covered the tail section. Did all of this outside on the seawall in Sausalito (no tourists yet) so it was just me and the seagulls waiting for the leftovers from Starbucks (breakfast while the EO did its juju / no fumes / no safety glasses). Doing some hand scrubbing to agitate and accelerate and then it occurred a stiff brush would facilitate so I went back upstairs for that. Scrubbed the crap out of everything and, within half an hour, had everything down to the plastic with no marring of the parts and no loosening of the glued joints which, after all, were chemically welded. Thanks again for the advice on different methods. Another weapon in the arsenal of conquering plastic... Cheers, Steve
