    I have an 1100 stock that i would like to strip. Can anybody tell me how to get the clear off without having to sand it. Tried laquer thinner but it didn't do a thing. Thanks for any help from larry.

    I use furniture finish or paint stripping liquid. It is kind of like a gel. Keep applying it to keep the gel moist. The epoxy finish eventually gets soft enough to scrape off. Do not use a really sharp tool to scrape the finish though or you may gouge the wood. Use a tooth brush on the checkering, just enough to get the finish off of it. Let it dry, sand, and finish. I use a checkering file to clean up the checkering. Jon
