best stripper for old paint?


I have an old exterior door that needs to be refinished. It has at least 4 coats of paint/varnish. The first 2 coats came off fairly easily but the third coat just laughs at our stripper (Crown Tuff Strip). Can anyone suggest a better stripper. I suspect the third coat is 40 year old oil based paint while the fourth might be varnish. Thanks

Peyton
