If someone is going to help (welding) for free, definitely work with their schedule.

Im using air craft stripper and seems to work well. Its a thin layer of paint and it comes right off.

I bought mine from someone on this forum and they had already hit it enough to give that brushed look, which I really like. I have a set of All Clad for cooking and went with the brushed (MC2, polished stainless inside) by my father in laws recommendation as its so much easier to clean (outside) than the polished stainless.

You must have a lot of spare time on your hands. When I got my HLT someone had written F&CK on it in magic marker (very light print). Four years and countless brews later it is still there.
