Stripping!

Well, as you can see by some past posts, I’ve had a lot of metal hardware being removed, and some time focused on the windows and now, the doors. In an effort to make everything look refreshed, I thought I would remove all the door hardware. Over the years we’ve collected up a bunch of glass door knobs and plates to restore the doors. But most, almost all have been painted at some point over the 80 years. So, buy some gel stripper and get together everything that needs stripping. It’s toxic stuff, so d it once, get it all and be careful!!! Goggles, gloves, sleeves and read instructions. Here’s a photo of the parts being stripped, crazy how it just shrivels up…
