Metabo Paint Remover Saves Furniture Remodelers Time and Energy
Sanding down material is a necessary evil part of the remodeling process. For every person that finds it relaxing or satisfying, there are ten who just want to get it over with and move on. Plus, if there are multiple layers of paint to work through, the process just becomes all the more grueling. Metabo thinks there should be an easier way to remove paint sans sanding.
