Removing pipe paint

post #1 of 8

Other than sand blasting any body recommend a good brand of grinder disc that will take that soft black paint of factory pipe I bought. Tried a hard spong type disc lasted about five mins. Haven't tried 40 grit on my air board yet. 😂

One oft favorite ways to remove paint, rust etc from metal is to use electrolysis. Course you have to have a tub big enough for the part.

Are you talking about the pipe that is shown on page 3 of your build thread? If so, it looks like mill scale and it's hard to remove but a flap disk on a 4 1/2" grinder works good enough to paint. Nothing is as good as sandblasting....

I used a knotted wire wheel with success to remove some of the paint on mine. But I picked up a couple Norton stripper wheels (the blue ones) from amazon and worked like a champ. I guess you used to be able to find them at home depot but I sure couldn't. Check them out on amazon... its an option

Hmm,

 

I'm getting my tank sandblasted, but I have to cook before that. Do you I could cook with the old paint on, or would it start giving aromas to my BBQ? I don't think the outside of cooking chamber would get that hot at all...
