brass brush residue - stripping paint
I'm down to the nitty gritty in stripping my old maple woodwork. All that's left is a few bits of paint/shellac lodged in cracks and corners. As a test today (on a piece of scrap) I used a brass brush and methyl chloride stripper, but the brush appeared to leave a dark, almost black residue (or maybe it changed the color of the wood). However, the brush worked great on getting the paint/shellac off.
So the brass brush appears to be a no go. I don't want to use steel wool (hate getting fibers lodged everywhere). Maybe a really stiff nylon brush might work? ANy other ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
