I've used my cheapy blaster in the yard (with a bucket of play sand) to remove varnish-like gunk. I just let the sand fall through the grass and into the soil. That can sometimes save me the hassle of chemical removers. I wear a mask, goggles, and heavy rubber gloves.

I haven't done a strip and repaint yet. But I'd guess it might be easier (and faster) to use conventional (power orbital sander) sanding on the large parts.
