I agree --if the trim is nice antique work it should be saved----OP didn't mention the quality or age--
I like that electric stripper---the chemical strippers make a mess of the plaster around the woodwork.
And people forgot the goal in stripping wood nicely is to keep as much melted paint out of the wood grain as possible. That is why I always start with a simple, super sharp hand scraper to see how it will work out. You will be surprised at how fast it goes if you have painted over hardwood and varnish.
Chemical strippers will cook the paint it and force it down in to the grain. You can sometimes shellac to grab the residue and then strip the shellac. Power sanding and stripping tools melt the paint into the wood grain too. The infrared strippers seem to just melt the paint and let you scrape it off the surface.
