Stripping Speedia reels

Post by Lee Rous » Tue Nov 03, 2015 9:28 pm

Hello there good forum, I am trying to collate information on the stripping of lovely Speedia pins. I hope to strip bare for complete restoration.

Is there any danger in this process, what are the best chemicals to use, will boiling remove most of the paint, how effective are the options?

Kind regards
