    I asked this exact question on RCM 19 years ago. Here's the thread:

    In the end I used the propane burner from my foundry furnace & burned it off. Outside & up wind.

      Find somebody in your locale that does dustless blasting.
      The Dustless Blaster removes powder coating like a dream. But don't take our word for it! If you have heard of dustless sand blasting or wet sand blasting th...

      I found a guy where I live that does it. It's very reasonable cost wise and pretty much the only effective way to get rid of powder coat. Regular paint goes away really fast and a plus is it leaves a blended consistent surface finish, so your new coating goes on nice.
      I just need one more tool,just one!

        I've seen these for a while. There are the cheap 20euro ones that Back Forest sees and then there are the others. The cheapest from unknown company in China is 10K cad, there's several in Canada at 20-50K cad. I have even seen a promo on Tiktok for a guy around Calgary selling them.

        They have interested me for a couple of projects and as a potential business. I would pay $2-400 for a project garden tractor that I am restoring down to bare metal.

          And these methods are supposed to be SAFER than paint stripper?

          I guess I am missing something.

          And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
          You will find that it has discrete steps.

            Safer...... in some respects but the method also introduces new hazards that you didn't have with the chemical stripper.
