Default Re: remove anno

For the small fee I'd send it in and have it anno'd at acid rain...a spyder body is like $15...Seriously I wouldn't be messing with Lye or the like...my friend burned his lungs when we worked at a golf course kitchen and the idiot boss told us to mix floor stripper (lye) bleach and soap...it made a wicked chemical cloud...you never know what those chemicals can do with left over gun oil...sorry I'm old now and wouldn't take the chance.

That being said, you WILL have to polish it a lot. It will tarnish pretty quickly.


Really, I didn't see any of the affects you guys are talking about as far as oven cleaner hurting you when I did this. I got it on my hands a couple of times and it didn't burn whatsoever. I think it's just a matter of washing it off asap and using common sense...

Well, to be honest, what I got was sort of overspray. I stuck the VA on a long screwdriver, sprayed it with the Easy Off, then let it sit for a few minutes. When it sprayed on me a bit, I finished spraying it, then went in and washed my hands. No issues with it on me. Maybe your's was industrial strength?
