Removing the paint off muh frame
 
I usually use Jasco Paint Stripper, but that usually lands up every where even with gloves on. I tried a Dremel today and I don't have any patience and $50 for a good sandblasting job any suggestions?

I've never tried anything that worked as well as the Jasco.

Can you burn it off with a propane torch?

Why do you wanna remove ALL of it? I've repainted three at home, just giving it enough of a sanding to rough up the coat for a fresh undercoat, then top coats x (at least 3).

That said, I've never kept them for long after that, although I know of one that my dad repainted in 1986 that is still holding up today. Not a bare metal job, just sand smooth, base coat, top coat.

If you don't have patience for the stripper, spend the $50 for the sandblast work.
