paint removal

This question is from 11.6-Amp 120-Volt Dual Temperature Heat Gun

July 12, 2015
I'm about to restart a project . Removing the several coats of old paint from a rod iron fence in advance of repainting. Have used various sanding tools in the past ... Dremel tool, belt sander, orbital sander ... but have found the process to be too slow given the amount of fence left to do. The paint is a combination of oil base and rattle can. My question is ... will a heat gun do this job both better and faster ? Which heat tool, ie. how hot do I need to get ? ... would be the best ? And, any suggestions on the right way to go about this project would be welcomed. Thanks, TMH Sugar Land, Tx.

Answer: 
Considering you are removing paint from wrought iron you can use the higher setting to soften the paint more quickly with out the fear of burning the material you are removing the paint from as you would if you were working with a wood object. The ambient temperature, distance you hold the heat gun from the surface you are heating will make a difference in how quickly the paint will soften. Milwaukee Read More

Answer: 
Stripping a fence is hard no matter how you do it. If the fence is iron, you might be better off with a propane touch. With this heat gun, it would be a slow process.

11.6-Amp 120-Volt Dual Temperature Heat Gun is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not Come Close to Its Rated Temperatures I have a Milwaukee 8975 dual temperature heat gun. I have measured the output at both the low and high settings. I used a Klein digital temperature meter to measure the temperatures. The temperature probe was placed 1 inch in front of the nozzle. The maximum heat at the nozzle on the high setting would only reach 600° F. At the low setting the temperature would only reach 360° F. The temperature would also fluctuate approximately 40° at either setting high or low. This tool does not even come close to it's rated temperatures of 570° F and 1000° F. Do not buy this tool. I feel that Milwaukee is increasingly degrading the quality of their tools to meet the home-improvement market. This is sad to me as a professional, as Milwaukee used to be a brand that I trusted.

Although the new heat gun replacement works as well as did the old one it will not fit the case from the original unit. The heat gun is bigger in diameter and the base stand is wider so use of the original case with accessories is a null point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Heat Gun Worked excellently! I removed 61 years of paint and varnish in one swoop without burning any wood. Use on high setting. To remove old hinge screws with ease, heat em up! They unscrew so easily when hot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great heat gun I'm a window tinter. I started using this gun 4-5 years ago. This gun gets about 5-6 hours of use on high, 6 days a week. Still going strong! I would recommend this to any one for any use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best investments ever I've had my Milwaukee heat gun for 15 years. I use it mainly to remove paint from my house, garage and sheds. It's seen alot of miles over the years and it's still going strong. The name has almost faded away and the nozzle is dented six ways to Sunday, but still she melts the paint away. I'm doing a large project now and I recently purchased another heat gun to have on hand. I figure this one could die at any time. On second thought, this gun just may outlive me....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right tool for the job When I peeled off my sheet linoleum floor in preparation for tile I found a hidden layer of glued-on tiles original to the 1959 build of the house. I started chipping them off but that was taking forever and making a mess of the subfloor. After a few hours of this "fun" I bought this heat gun thinking it would soften the mastic and release the tiles. Boy, did it ever! I did the remaining 95% of the floor in about 2 hours with zero subfloor damage. The heat from the gun was very evenly dispersed so I could get the tiles good and warm very quickly without lighting anything nearby on fire - then they peeled off in one piece with a putty knife. The tool's built-in wire stand was very handy because you can set it aside upright with the hot bits safely off the floor. The cord was long enough that I could maneuver around my (small) kitchen without changing outlets.
