In Response To: Re: Stripping ebonised finish (Ian Mcfarland)

I think it's just slow and steady Ian...Black and red are always a challenge to completely remove, especially if you don't know what the finish is..sounds like it's coming off..perhaps just leave the stripper on longer, even cover it with plastic sheeting while waiting to allow it to really liquify the stuff...what type of stripper? Stripper formulations vary quite a bit and some are better at removing stain form dyes and colorants...a water washable one can yield good results sometimes on pine....let the stripper work and scrape and steel wool it all off then take scrub brushes in a pail of warm water and scrub the surface followed by a hand dry...just make sure it is definately a water washable stripper.....
