    Got this little stove for Christmas. I've seen the crappy reviews on them, haha, and I know they're nothing to write home about, but, I wanted one none the less. Here's a few photos:

    I would like to repaint it. Is paint stripper a good idea on a stove like this? Does the paint have to be heat paint? What are these stoves like under the paint? Steel, aluminum, etc? Doesn't necessarily have to be the same color.

    Any input on the best way to go about it is appreciated.

    You mean the tin? ... and lose the graphics? Your stove, your choice, but I’d retain the paint/graphics and would use automobile wax polish to enhance what’s there.

    The stove is thin tin ( or steel ) of some sort. I don't think high heat pair is necessary as the flames do not contact the font. They are nice littles stoves, it is only the lack of safety features that make them iffy. I like them.

    Not the tin, the stove. The paint is coming off of it. I'll leave the tin as is. Don't have to be heat paint, cool. I'm going to try paint stripper on it.

    Also, I got a message saying this got moved to the fettling forum. Isn't that where I posted it at? Also, am I supposed to upload images here? I'm used to using a photo host.

    Upload photos directly here; very easy. Hit the 'upload a file' button, upload your pic from your device, and post it. You can do thumbnail or full size. I always use full size, as, I think, most do on balance.
    Really simple. There are more precise discussions here, though.
