I am redoing an old house and have the original baseboard and woodwork I’d like to strip and refinish.
There used to be a guy in town that did that kind of stripping that was very cost effective. He put the parts in a long tank of something and let it sit for several days, and the finish stripped right off. His business is closed up, though.
Any idea what kind of chemicals he would be using in that tank? I think it is a fairly common practice, and I’ve heard that it included alcohol. Anyone have any ideas?
