Can't get this off! Need advice, please.
I have an aquarium stand that I'm working on. It's particle board, I think with a baked on coating of enamel. The enamel is chipped and ugly and it's black. I want it off. I want to get down to the wood and I'm having a really hard time getting the enamel off!
I tried a stripping compound but it doesn't cut through the enamel. So I have three different sanders. I have one for a car, it's round and will probably make gashes in the wood and sand unevenly. I have a belt sander and it's powerful enough but it sands unevenly, makes gashes in the wood and the belt repeatedly slips off. Then I have a random orbital sander and even with 40 grit paper (the coarsest I can find), it's taking FOREVER to get the stupid enamel off. It'll take all year with this sander!
I need ideas please!
