Vinegar bath to remove rust . . .

I know a vinegar bath will remove rust from relics , but I'm trying to also remove old powder coating from a couple brackets . Do you think the vinegar will work at removing the powder coating ? I have a 4 inch grinder I could use it it comes to that . Thanks in advance for ideas .

I do not believe that will work. Sandblasting would though.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Perhaps nail polish remover might work...try a little and see...Acetone can be bought in gallon cans.

I would use orthophosphoric acid and a wire brush.

That might work however it could be hazardous, I never heard of of to I looked it up. I would rather use sand blasting after reading this.

Vinegar wont take paint off.

Use metal paint stripper.

Yea, proper PPE and ventilation is necessary 100%, but it works like a charm, just have to be cautious and responsible.
