    Call me lazy if you will but... I have to paint my shed before winter and it's really peeling bad. I mowed my yard tonight and was trimming around the shed and thought, hmmmm. I took the trimmer to it and in 15 minutes I have it 80% scraped. Just need to do some minor scraping with a putty knife, and it's ready for paint on Saturday. It's going to be really fun if anyone would like to come over and do it while I mow or wash my truck or close my pool or get another vasectomy.

    I would think that would screw up your wood and leave marks all over it. But hey, if it works.

    yea i think that would bugger the wood but you just paint over it so what the hell. Try a torch. I think thats what the pros do along with pressure washing. Just dont burn it down like a contractor did to a multi million dollar home here in town.

    Didn't touch the wood. In fact it ate the 095 string up fast.
