Default Stripping Paint off metal

Is there anytype of chemical stripper that I can use on stripping paint off metal. My wife bought this really nice bakers rack for our dining room, but the only thing is, is that it is painted white and I want to take it down to bare metal. I have tried the metal brush on my drill but the paint is some kinda think on the thing and I will be there for weeks doing that. I thought about getting it sand blasted but not really sure anyone around here that does it and I dont want to rent a sand blaster and make a huge mess just for one piece of furniture. So my last thought was using a stripper on it, but wasnt sure if such a thing existed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There are chemical strippers available at Lowes/Home Depot, but it may be powder coated and the stripper may not work. Sand blasting is probably the best option. RP Welding in Navarre does blasting. 939-3469 If you have an air compressor with a good cfm rating you can pick up a sand blaster at Harbor frieght.

I would think that unless it is powder coated or epoxy, any good paint store, Lowes or Home Depot will have carry a stripper. Be aware that some are very caustic and require that they be used in a well vented area (like outside) and with protective clothing.

I used some stuff called aircraft stripper a few weeks ago to remove paint off of a tub. It worked really well. I bought it from Auto Zone. Be sure to get the low odor bottle, I was told the regular stripper is strong. Hope this helps:letsdrink

I've got a small sand blaster you can borrow, you will need a medium sized shop compressor and a $2. bag of blasting sand from lowes or HD. If you don't have the compressor you can blast it here. If you're interested shoot me a pm. Michael
