After many hours of work I have now managed to get all the white paint from the table. This early table from Plus Linje was made 1959/60. After that, these tables had four legs in the crossfoot instead of three.
The table is getting better and better. The edges are now without paint and the plate will soon be clean from paint. It was very good to use a razorblade and a heating machine for the large areas of paint. Then I did a small test with a rubber to take away some small rest. […]
After some hours with razorblade and a heating pistol… The white paint is not original so therefor I will try remove the paint with razorblade and some heat… A lot of work but probably worth it!
