That is what a lot of us do...an airmotor with a 2' roloc will work on some of the tighter areas and a small HF spot blaster for the seams and such and you are good to go..just do what you can and at the end of the day shoot some epoxy primer on the cleaned areas and move on..

we used those to finish spots the blaster missed ,they work great , prepare to use alot of them if your going to try to strip a large area they kind of wear out quickly ,

Although I've never used that type, I think you'll find yourself buying way more than 2. They will wear out pretty quick...

Eastwood has a disc set up for the 41/2 and 8 inch grinders. They are designed for stripping paint and work very good. The down side is you have to buy the backing plates for the grinders. Have fun

I've used a lot of things to strip paint including those,but the best I've found so far for stripping jambs and such are the rol-loc brown cookies (gasket cleaners) they dont leave any grinding marks and are pretty cost effective plus as they wear you can use smaller and smaller backing plates till theres nothing left...the smaller they get the tighter the spot you can use them in.Those green things just wear to fast for me...

Yeah those roloc gasket discs are killer for jambs and you are right about using them up. Check out www.smartshoppersinc.com they have a house brand that helps keep the cost dowm. Have fun

3M bristle discs/Roloc discs

While I have used these to strip paint in some areas of a vehicle, I think there are other means to do so @ a lower cost. However, I have used these in the past to clean up an area where I might be welding, to eliminate any rust or minor corrosion or other surface abnormalities. They are helpful also to get the temps of the sheet metal up so that the 1st welds are not on "cold metal". Even thought my garage is heated, the metal in the winter time is cold to the touch, so I just run these around a little on the area to be welded to warm up the metal.

Regards,
Mike.
