Lead-Safe Paint Removal, Images 9-15

The Metabo tool is easy to control and works deep into the corners.

Adjusting the cutting depth is done with a T-handle Allen wrench.

When it's outfitted with fresh 36-grit sandpaper, the Festool is fast and smooth.

Effective dust collection depends on correctly positioning a moveable brush by rotating an auxiliary handle; turning the handle clockwise rotates the brush counterclockwise.

A quick-release lever makes it easy to remove and adjust the Festool's extractor hood, but an inadvertent bump can knock everything out of alignment.

The Speedheater has a multisided profile scraper that allows it to remove paint from moldings as well as flat stock.
