Any recommendations for a stripper for doors?
Customer has about 8 interior doors, each 8 ft. tall, each with 5 panels.
At least two coats of enamel on each.
Need to strip and refinish.
I've previously used a couple of different brands of stripper but would appreciate hearing recommendations for a good stripper.

Bix Stripper works pretty good. I learned the hard way though... Wear saftey glasses when working with it. Smells pretty good so if possible take the doors in the garage or something.

Come to vegas, lots of effective strippers here.:whistling2:

I usually go for the straight methelyene chloride.

Use the thick first then the thin.

Stripper needs to be worked quite a bit, with painted doors, one of the strippers you "lay on" and then cover with paper would free up some time.

No one stripper works for everything
Each job may require a different type/brand/kind
Sometimes several, sometimes nothing will work

The best advice I can give you is to take it to a pro and have it dipped, and figure that charge into your bid

Seriously, it's just better that way...on sooooo many levels

Tim, Have you ever used that?
Use it all the time, there is some sanding and scraping that needs to be done but, you'll have that with anything. The best thing about this product is , the longer you leave it on the more work it will do. Some jobs i'll apply and leave set over night, it does most of the work for you.:thumbsup:
