i have been trying to strip the finish on a Remington 760 for a while now. i set up a 1/2 HP bench grinder and started on the barrel with a 8" sisal wheel and coarse compound, and it is taking a long time to just get the bluing stripped. I ordered 8" muslin wheels but all i can find for a 1/2" arbor are 3/8" wide. Two questions, where can i find 8" muslin wheels for a 1/2" arbor wider than 3/8"? (i called brownells and they said it will probably be a special order, and i cant afford the felt wheels), and i seen a stripping agent in brownells thats supposed to pull the bluing out of the metal, does that stuff work? that or any other advice for stripping and polishing metal without access to a bead blast cabinet would greatly be appreciated, thank you.
