Default So I got a new Paint Shaver Pro today...

Started a new job and spent most of the day scraping MAYBE one eighth of the siding. It still looks like crap. So I got a new paint shaver pro. Figure it is going to save me time and turn out a much better final product.

On the way home drooling about using it tomorrow. Walk in the door and the Princess (Daddy's girl) is sick. Her doctor is off tomorrow and the wife makes has it all set up so I can take her as a walk in ("You ARE the boss, its your business, I can't take off work.") at 9:00 in the morning.

I'm jonesing because I am a tool junkie! (Yes my daughter comes first) I need a new tool fix, and will probably have to wait until Friday! AAAArrrrggghhh.

Jealous that you got one, but not envious that you will be stripping paint. Looks like you will have to wait another day to play with it.

You get the 6 or 8 amp?

It was brutal today and is going to be tomorrow too. Heat index of 100-105.

You will have fun for the first 10 minutes or so, then you will hit a nail and chills will go up your spine. You say "Damn" you keep going and hit a rough spot. "BAM" a big ole 1/4 inch deep swirl mark that will need patching. You tell yourself, its ok, I just need more practice.


For real - you will love it. Just be careful. Its a great tool.

Hehe I am installing tile inside the AC for the next week.

I had to spray out a deck railing package on site yesterday, and it was 99 degrees under the pines where I was working. I wasn't expecting the lumber until next week, and I ate a big lunch.

Bad mistake, and I still don't feel right.

Some of the boards are cupped pretty bad. I figure I'll be going back over a few areas with an orbital sander.

Heard about the nails. Luckily, there is not that much paint on the siding so you can see the nails, but it is in bad shape, peeling like crazy in spots.

With the 6 amp they say you need to set them prior. The paint shaver you can adjust the depth of how much to take off, to start off set it at the very minimum and go from there. Also don't forget to adjust that screw at the top so you don't take off the top of the upper boards.

No matter what you will need to go over with a random orbital. There is allot to this before and after, but even so there is no other tool like it and you won't see all that wavy chit from using those disk sanders.

Man, talk about going from one extreme to the other With the winter you guys get? Were still in the 60s and 70s here. And our winters are pretty mild. We just get 9 months of rain. Anyway, congrats on the new toy. Looking forward to hearing how it works.

Sounds fun....we have that large masonite style 6-8" lap siding but rarely any clapboard or small stuff...

I've run through quite a few random orbitals to feather badly failing/peeling paint after scraping but it sure makes it look good...

So I am wondering about the corners. What do you do to even the boards?

I know this tool won't get them, and we run into the same thing refinishing flooring. It means hand scraping a few sixteenths of wood down to even the floor.

You can use a sharp chisel, or even a putty knife.

Yes. Used it for half the day. Used your tips and set nails first. (didn't hit any yet) and set it to take very little off.

It's a beast and you have to be careful but I was getting a handle on it.

Did you ever use one of their sanders?

Nope - from seeing them on the site they look just like regular orbitals? are they different?

You have to be on alert at all time using the shaver, not one of them tools you can day dream while using it.
