Paint stripping a 1907 door with paint and varnish

Postby Maddo » Mon Jan 25, 2021 8:41 am


Have wooden doors to strip down.
Original doors so from 1907, mixture of approx 5-7 layers of either eggshell or satin paint. Centre of doors is original varnish which was covered with hardboard in 60/70’s.
Tried the product from Screwfix but this will not move the varnish.

Any ideas.?
