Stripping paint from metal?


Got a small solid metal table I'm trying to repaint, but the original paint is really on there. What can I use to make paint removal easier? I have a Kraftech palm sander that is 1.4 amp and 1300 rpm and 60 grit 3M paint stripping paper.

strypeeze type will work too. use in well vented area, of course. if damage from sandblasting is an issue, try flo-blasting (soda)
