Stripping paint from Cast iron radiators using a lye bath
I've got a few a 1-way steam radiators that sorely need a new paint job. I've read here and elsewhere that I can give them a lye bath prior to painting. I have some large plastic cement mixing bins. One for lye solution, one for a clean rinse.
I can plug the air vent (1/8 brass plugs) and main valve with black plugs. And drop them into the lye bath.
One issue is I have to do this indoor b/c two of the four radiators are absolute monsters. I can't get them down safely even with a handtruck.
Can I do this indoors on a job site? The floors are subfloors and I can leave them in a room that is well ventilated. And setup fans to exhaust the fumes.
