Stripper strainer

Come on guys get your minds out of the gutter. :D I did a search on this topic and found nothing. This is a tip to get a few extra miles out of your stripper. I hated the fact after using my strippers a couple of times it was hard to tell the parts from flakes of paint/chrome that was suspended in the media.

Supplies

1. Empty milk jug or something similar to drain into.

2. A funnel (I used a 2 liter bottle with the bottom cut off.)

3. Coffee filters.

4. Time

First off I put the funnel in the milk jug then a filter in the funnel.

I then poured the stripper from it's holding container into the coffee filter/funnel until it was 3/4 full then let it strain. After awhile the filter will get plugged. So carefully pick-up the filter just high enough to place a new filter underneath then pour the remainingliquid from the old filter into the new.

Repeat as necessary.

You can also use Scott's Blue shop towels as a substitute for coffee filters.

If you happen yo have a significant other who still wears stockings or pantyhose, they work great as filter media too. Stripper, stockings....just goes together, doesn't it?

Yes they do but I think my gal would look at me funny if I grabbed a pair of her panty hose. But thinking about it they probably work better.
