Ran across this recipe while working at a woodshop a few years ago, thought I'd share because this stuff will strip finish quick and easy and will even strip stain if you scrub too hard. Is 2 parts Acetone, 1 part Xylene and 1 part MEK... DISCLAIMER!!! - Don't smoke and no open flames, keep things well ventilated, if you like smooth soft hands make sure you wear gloves, maybe a mask and definitely eye protection in case of splash or splatter... Work one area at a time, I use cheap 2 for a dollar brushes and apply in one direction repeating until I get down to stain. After I finish a piece, I wipe it down really well with a rag soaked in paint thinner/mineral spirits, 2 or 3 times to get rid of any residue and then I let dry for at least 24 hours.

This stuff is Very Potent, use at your own discretion, THIS is old school stripper and would probably be banned in California :D :D !!

A talking machine might be the closest you'll get to a time machine.

If it's banned in California, that's an endorsement in my book. :lol:

Oh, it was probably innocent enough, George; it involved Gypsy Rose Lee and Lily St. Cyr :lol:

Ahhh, o'kay... Well, never let that worry enter your mind with me, thick skinned and pretty much impervious to any kind of hurt feelings or offense :D :D I was always a little more into the pin-ups personally...

Acetone itself is potent stuff...MEK even more so!

I was stripping metal on an antique electric heater--the "parabolic" type shortly after the "luminous radiator" era. The stripper I used was Citri-Strip but acetone attacked the old nitro paint like it was nothing. It also blew up when I tried to dispose of the rags--and that's how I know it was good stuff!
