I've stripped four hundred staircases
and I want desperately to tell others HOW. But the tallest has been 3.5 stories. DOES ANYONE HAVE A TALLER ONE I COULD HELP OUT ON?
bye. Paintbusters

Well, give us more info. What parts are you stripping exactly? Treads, risers, handrails, spindles, stringers?

How many coats of paint are on it? Is it inside or outside? How big is this staircase?

You're looking at a tedious, unpleasant, time consuming job.

What kind of wood is it? Is it really old, good wood, worth stripping? Or is it common, newer wood, better left painted?

Paintbusters looks like he selling something, probably some over priced paint or stain stripper.

His tallest story was 3.5 stories long. He wants to know if someone has a taller story then his. Giggle Giggle. That's the way I read his message.
400 staircases. Whose leg is he pulling?

He asked about staircases in that thread. I guess this is his way of bringing up the subject.
