|Tools - Hot air gun and a triangle type scraper (Regularly sharpened).|
Tuesday, 30 April 2013
Back to work on the Mirror last night, I have now largely finished scraping the old paint from the hull. I feel this DeWalt hot air gun deserves a special mention. I had a Bosch hot air gun which stopped working suddenly, so I borrowed this one from a neighbour. The difference was remarkable. The DeWalt seemed to get hotter quicker so the the paint would go softer quicker meaning that the heat build up in the wood was more localised and would cool down quicker.
Sorry about the quality pictures below, it was starting to get dark :o). I refrained from going overboard with the heat gun on the edges and the epoxy taped seams.
