I've used various paint strippers too.  Works like a charm but the fumes from some can be noxious.  Doesn't hurt the lead either.

I'll also vote for Simple Green as my best all-around paint stripper. Pine Sol has not worked well for me, and I've never tried brake fluid.

For my absolute toughest jobs, this stuff works like a charm (but you need to wear gloves):

If you haven't tried Super Clean (used to be Castrol Super Clean), it's by far the best I've used to remove paint.

It even removes Testors from old lead AND plastics without damaging the figures. Soak in Super Clean for about 4 hours, brush with toothbrush, rinse, DONE!

I'm going to give that a shot.  Looks like it would be a lot safer than some of the other chemicals, certainly the paint strippers.  They have it at my local hardware store too!

Pine-Sol is good for latex paints on lead, OK with enamel paints, and a toss-up with old plastic minis.  It is cheap, readily available, and not overly toxic.

Hey everyone,

Made it back to Hong Kong after 2 1/2 weeks in the USA and Canada.
I've got 6 packages from various people on the board and Ebay to open after I clear out all my work. :P

I'll give a big shoutout to loliwookie, Geraud I received your package but haven't opened it yet. Merci mon ami!

Also got my Pathfinder Tome of Horrors from Paizo.

Then a number other items. :)

Best regards,
Ronald

That's interesting to read:

"Made it back to Hong Kong" .... from the US and Canada.

Hey FormCritic,

Yes well I've pretty much made Hong Kong my home since moving to there from Toronto, Canada in 1997. But I could see what you mean by it being interesting reading. :)

If you think that's interesting to read, you should have seen my traveling itinerary. Total of 3,600 miles by car to all different parts of the USA and Canada. :P

Best regards,
Ronald
