Only because so many things like towers, bridge ect. were painted with lead
based paint and the sheared size of tower sections, I believe the
sandblasting might be the best way to go. These companies are already set up
to do it right and paint remover is such nasty stuff without the proper
equipment to protect your lungs and eyes and the cost factor thrown in.
Sandblasting the cheepest way to go. If you take all the recon. cost and
repainting cost and your time I personally belive it more cost effective
to just buy new tower unless its real heavy comm. grade stuff to begin with.

Subject: [Towertalk] Stripping paint from Rohn 45
Anyone got a quick method for stripping FAA red & white from Rohn tower?
My drill and wire brush seem to be taking forever...though perhaps I
need a different brush bit.
Thanks / 73
