Want to build a stripping diptank



(-----) 2004

I appreciate help from anyone. Where can I find a dip tank or how can I make one? To strip metal and wood.

Thanks

That probably isn't a good idea, Erma. You'd be better off taking parts to an established furniture stripper.

But the first thing you'd need to decide is what chemical you would use as the stripper. It can't be even slightly flammable, it can't fume objectionably, it needs to attack most paints and finishes you'll encounter, and it must be harmless to the wood or metal you're stripping. With this known, you can select a corrosion resistant material for the tank. It may need heating, or ultrasonic agitation, or fume extraction.

The tank will probably be steel and you can have it fabricated by any local welding shop or you can buy a tank from many sources.
