Build your own Infrared Paint Remover – stripping made easy


The DIY Infrared Paint Remover. You’ve gotta love teh internets haven’t you? Here we have an intelligent use of common sense, applied to a product which appears to be somewhat over-priced in the marketplace. Result? Home decorators across the world rejoice, while paint peels off doors, windows and wooden domestic appliances without a murmur.

Wife calling you crazy: free
Parts: $40
Money Saved: $400
Watching wife enjoy stripping paint: Priceless.

The rest of this page focuses on simply repackaging a quartz heater to make your own IPR. I considered making a ‘mother of all IPRs’ by using the Lakewood heater shown above. It has 17″ long quartz rods. I bet you could really chug along with a bad boy like that. I decided I like my QT1, and that I would sacrifice our other Lakewood quartz heater, the quartz rod length was more in keeping with commercial IPR size.
