I also tried using a pressure washer to remove the loose paint, but found it gouged the old wood.
Unlike the heat gun you must be careful not to heat the paint too hot. It definitely can heat the paint up much hotter. Also, if bits of paint fall onto the element they will probably catch fire, so it is wise not to use this someplace where a fire can easily be started.
I'm restoring old double pane windows and the glazing putty is like granite. Because I am staining and painting the windows also, this works great and is fast. The old stain and paint bubbles up in seconds; hit it with a scraper and move on. The putty softens to a point where it's removable. You get the hang of holding it so that you aren't over heating the glass after a few broken panes. The only drawback is there is no on or off switch...if it's plugged in, it's on.
I put the heat tool away and broke out a dremel tool with a fan sanding bit and started working the surface and it came clean...looking brandy spanking new.
A few weeks later I attempted a second window frame. This time I hit paydirt! There is a trick to using this thing, that I wish I had known. Listen closely...first...make sure your scraper is clean, no clumped up messes on it. Make sure it stays that way throughout the process. If you have to have multiple scrapers, or you have to stop partway through to clean it, do it. Trust me, its worth the effort. Second...do not overheat the paint. At first signs of bubbling, you will see a little smoke rising up, shift the heater away from your target spot slightly to begin the heat transfer process. As you move the heater down your surface, stick the corner of your scraper into the paint and lift it off of the surface, actually picking the paints surface and pulling it away from the wood and towards your body. DO NOT SCRAPE! The scraping seems to mash it into the wood. I was able to pull entire strips of paint right off by picking and lifting, making sure to gradually heat the surface and pull it slow.
I would suggest practicing this on some junk areas first. I wish I had known. Now I have a few hours of sanding ahead of me to fix my first attempt.
I used it to strip the bottom of my porch to bare wood. It was somewhat time consuming but makes the job very easy, especially considering the alternatives. Just hold the element over the spot and wait for the paint to begin to bubble - usually 5-10 seconds. As you begin to scrape you just move the scraper along behind the element. I got to where I could take off about 2-3 feet at a time. The directions said not to hold it against the wood but 1/4" from it but I consistently held it against the wood w/ no problems whatsoever.
For the price you can't beat it either. I have a neighbor who purchased the radiant bulb one that is around $300-400. I guess they are not as hot so there is less risk for fire and chemicals from the paint. However, that makes the job slower and the bulbs eventually burn out and there is the potential to break them. He told me the bulbs cost $100 to replace.
Excellent product at a reasobale price. A+++
