Paint removal tool


Recommended Posts

I recently read a thread here that discussed paint removal down to the bare metal, and someone recommended a rotary sander and the appropriate grit cylinders. I've spent a stupid amount of time looking for this thread, to no avail. Can somebody point me in the right direction? Many thanks

Oh, hey- the 3M patent must have run out.  Thanks for the research, Tom!


Those look very much like the abrasive- loaded fiberglass stripping wheels from 3M, and those DO

a good job with mixed gooey paints, bondo, rust, and even undercoat.  They are pretty aggressive, though,

so they can heat, distort, and remove some metal if overspeeded and/or overpressured.

I don't know if the HorrorFright version is as good as Minnesota Mining and Materials...

but the purpose- adapted angle grinder might be an improvement over the wood drill I used to use.


It's NOT fast- I used them in corners and on rust, and then used other methods to do large areas.


Dynabrade makes a system of wire wheels they used to call DynaZip

that's a neat power wire brush.  I found it to be far better at, as they say, cleaning out rusty seams.

Eastwood also has one   they call it the SCT        they have a number of different grits    I have had one for 3-4 years     It does a really nice job of taking it right down to bare metal and leaves it looking like brushed steel     no warping of the metal but there is quite a bit of dust.


Thanks, Rick

Is this the tool you're thinking of?




It was discussed here.



Along with these discs in the next post.


4-1/2" x 7/8" Easy Strip and Clean Disc



My shop used the strip disk.  I have too. Mostly on hard to reach spots like rain gutter and nooks and crannies.  Not sure what they used on flats

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
