    I got them cleaned off I cooked 2 of them at a time for 20 minutes or so, and pressure washed them off. Came out pretty good removed all of the bad paint and some of the original. I used 3 containers of lye drain cleaner. I got some vises soaking without heat that had multi layers of paint on them.Click image for larger version  Name:	506D155F-A710-4209-ADD4-2A9B66C6A114.jpg Views:	0 Size:	2.85 MB ID:	2001157 Click image for larger version  Name:	D08F8B50-F49D-4DDA-94F6-D606F880A3E7.jpg Views:	0 Size:	3.34 MB ID:	2001158

      Not my business, but a question worth some thought.

        Neutralize it with vinegar:



        It will produce sodium acetate and water, but probably other stuff that the lye reacted with.

        Then maybe pour the solution on concrete as a waterproofing agent.

          Neutralize with vinegar, pour into tub lined with plastic sheet, allow to evaporate and throw the plastic sheet in the trash?
          It's all mind over matter.
          If you don't mind, it don't matter.

            Well……. I figured out what happened I was getting ready to throw the bad can of paint out and I happened to look at the label, it wasn’t paint it is primer the can on the right. I sure had my head in my butt. It probably would of been fine if I would have thinned it a bit and sprayed it on then using actual PAINT instead of primer. Click image for larger version

              I am going to keep it around for a while I have some vises and other things I want to strip the paint and grease off of.
