    Trick little part for your ski projects

    Ok guys i have painted 2 ski and both of them i tried the heat gun and 220 on a DA air tool to remove the decals. As you know it is a pain to get them all off. Well i went to the local Finish Master automotive paint store to get some primer and i was looking around and found this part that you can put in your drill it is called a "smart eraser pad" im sure that there is other names but let me tell ya it took off all my decals and left the paint under neath alright, well in my case im repainting another color so i pressed a little harder but it did an awesome job. SO if your ready to do a build on your ski and you need to remove the old decals on it Get the eraser!!

    That's just my 2 cents.

    Or you can just use a hair dryer and get one end of the decal hot and peal it off the hull and once you get the end of the decal in your fingers pull it off slowly moving the hair dryer a little ahead of the part of the decal that is un stuck. It leaves NO residue behind and it looks like it was never there!

    Ah tried that one, takes to long maybe if your ski is about 2 years old. My hull is 12 years old so the stickers just peal about an inch and tear.

    I tried one of those erasor pads..ended up making me angry beause it left rubber all over the place and didn't do much for the decals I was trying to remove.Ended up being easier for me to just use a heat gun and new razr blade.

    I've had the best luck with the eraser wheels. But, my ski's are older, so the decals tend to break instead of peel. The eraser wheel does leave behind alot of eraser dust, but it gets everything off. The tricks is to use a real, CORDED, high rpm drill or grinder. Skip the battery powered crap. they have a recommended rpm on the wheel. stick to that and you can strip a ski in minutes.

    Yeah the wheel says 3200 rpm but not to exceed 4000

    my dewalt drill has 2500 and that worked just fine.
