Hi there,
I have been lurking for some time so I finally signed in. I am a painting contractor from Melbourne Australia with 34 years in the trade. My main area of work is old exterior repaints on weatherboard houses. We don't have as strict regulations with lead paint removal down here compared to the U.S.
I have just ordered a paint shaver after reading your favorable comments on this forum about that tool.

cheers Brian C

Welcome fellow Aussie,

I look forward to seeing how the paint shaver goes.

Here we do have similar regulations however they are not followed up on by the relevant authorities, and too many painters just don't seem to care.
