    Anyone have a method for removing the "red" finish on the old Krieghoffs? We have tried acetone, sent it to a commercial furniture stripper, and even sandpaper. Anyone got a fix?
    Thanks

    Buck, Go down to home depot and buy some aircraft paint stripper--contains methanol chloride--nasty stuff! However it will bubble up the finish. Scrape it off but don't breath it. Wash off wood after stripping with water let dry and sand as usual. been doing it for 25 years. Phil Simms Stockmaker
