Stripping peeling paint

I have a roll type garage door with panels that probably hasnt been painted in many years. The wood mould has alot of peeling paint and I tried sanding it off but it is taking along time to get so little done. If I use paint stripper chemical will it do alot of damage to the wood moulding?

Might be easier oan or cheaper to replace it.To answer your question, no, it should not do any damage to the molding.

There are some great paint strippers out there. The key with most of them is time, the longer they sit on the surface, the better they work. I like Star 10 paste, ( of course I sell it ) Works well, takes about an hour, and is somewhat expensive. $27 per qt, and a quart covers about 10 sq ft. But hey, do you want cheap, or effective.
