3 Tips When Filling a Deep Hole in a Wall | DoItYourself.com

OOPS. Did you bash a hole in your drywall or plaster when you carried that bed frame upstairs? Did that avid ping pong player accidentally kick through the lower wall trying to get that tricky, curve shot? Did someone back up your antique chair too hard and punch a hole in the wall? Or, worse yet, did some angry person throw something or smash their fist through it? I've never seen a house that didn't have a hole from one of these things...whether the cause was admitted or not. You can fix it yourself with these tips.

A deep hole in your wall is an unsightly problem, and it can lead to hazards over time.

FAQ - How quickly can I repaint wood stripped with Speedheater™Infrared Paint Removers?

Immediately! The scraped wood has sufficient roughness for the new paint to adhere well. Wood stripped with infrared is left at the perfect moisture content (less than 10%) for long-lasting paint adhesion. Do not leave bare wood exposed to the elements for extended periods of time.
The bare wood can quickly absorb moisture again. Wet wood is the most common cause of paint failure. We recommend stripping exterior paint when the outside temperatures make immediate repainting possible.

Flattening Rough-Sawn Wood

It’s a shame to trash rough-sawn wood which you discovered during your home restoration. Consider these tips to guide you to its rescue.

Woodworkers all have their own system for flattening wood, some of which are pretty complex. This is one simple method that’ll get you started.

Using the correct paint scraper edge ensures complete removal of existing paint without causing damage to trim details in the wood. When used with Speedheater Infrared Paint Removers, the Speedheater™ Paint Scrapers remove years of thick paint quickly and easily. All the scrapers have long ergonomic handles and a laser cut, Swedish steel blades.

* The Boomerang Scraper is perfect for revealing details covered with layers of paint. The blade of this scraper is shaped like a Boomerang. Its two outside, convex edges form a ½” curve at the bottom making it perfect for narrow grooves in baseboards and window and door trim. The inside, concave edge works well on thin spindles and louvers of shutters. The tips of the blade are 1/8’’ and rounded. They reach into very tight spaces and into carved woodwork details like rosettes and floral designs.

* Our newest Flexi-Scraper is perfect to strip paint or varnish from irregular surfaces. Grooves and convex surfaces can be straight or curved; narrow or wide. The Speedheater™ Flexi-Scraper is ready for the challenge. It has 3 unique blades with many straight, rounded, concave and convex edges. The head tilts so you can scrape several different profiles without switching blades. A simple screw attaches the blade and makes changing blades fast.

Once all the paint is removed, users can either repaint the clean, smooth surface or varnish it to enjoy the natural wood and designs.

Who is Eco-Strip?

We are the exclusive US Distributor of the Speedheater™ Infrared Paint Removal System. The Speedheater™ Standard 1100 and Speedheater™ Cobra use infrared rays to quickly warm paint and wood for easy stripping. The process is safe with no lead fumes and clean with little paint dust. The resulting wood surface is bare and immediately ready for priming and painting. No other paint removal method can achieve these high-quality results with so few steps! This method also reduces the risk of fire, environmental damage, and clean up time.

Heat has been used for decades to strip paint. Heat stripping with other methods is dangerous. Infrared heat allows you to work much faster than with a standard heat gun without working harder. Infrared heat stripping is quick and easy with Speedheater™ products. These innovative paint st*****rs work by gently heating paint to the point at which it can be safely removed. Speedheater™ products draw the natural wood resins back to the wood’s surface, effectively rejuvenating it.

We love talking to customers and helping them with their paint stripping projects.

Bought the Speedheater Cobra from Eco-strip to remove the extern Awlwood varnish from my Cabo Rico 38. The Speedheater Cobra is an amazing tool for quickly lifting the varnish. We were able to clean nearly 80 feet of cap rail and the lazeratte cover in two days, whereas a heat gun would have taken weeks. Glad to share our video.
Does your product contain any corn-derived ingredients? And is there a way to get it in Canada, other than through subscription? We have a zero-waste grocery store in my town, and I think they would be interested in carrying them.
1886 woodwork that was covered by a dozen or more coats of paint...no match for my Cobra!
Any idea when the Cobra will be in stock to purchase?
Last Thursday I was talking with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kalamazoo about the glorious 1852 house they are in the process of rehabilitating. One of the volunteers had just started to sand a wonderful old door to remove the paint. I told his about the Speedheater and offered to loan mine to him for the day. Within ten minutes, he had it in his hands and finished the stripping he needed to do within an hour. The Old House Network has used the Speedheater in numerous window and paint strupping workshops and we have taught well over 100 people how to use it for all their paint stripping projects. I have used the Speedheater to strip furniture, woodwork and fancy gingerbread. (I told my husband I want the Cobra for my Christmas present!)
