Removing Paint

I'm not sure exactly what kind of paint that SS used in the early 60's (gold), but it is some outstanding stuff.

Ok, I was a little confused on my belt sander manual post earlier.

It wasn't the entire thing, just the alignment section, and it was posted here by Nick.

The router with a circle cutter is probably your best bet.
