I’ve never removed paint from a steel bell with liquid stripper. Has anyone done this or would it be better to have it sand blasted? There is only one layer of paint on the outside. The interior has never been painted.
Liquid paint stripper is safe for a metal bell. Apply the stripper as directed and use a bronze wire brush to remove the paint. A steel brush should not be used on a bronze bell, but could be used on a steel bell. This would be cheaper than sand blasting and will not pit the bell.
