    It’s time once again to repaint one or more sides of my house. I’ve done it before and know that if you don’t go through living h*ll of good prep, you may as well burn your money.

    In the past I’ve used a Makita disc sander to strip the clapboards to bare wood. But I’m no expert and I leave various gouges in the wood.

    Is there a better sander to use? Or something else, such as a heating gun?

    Thanks very much.

    https://paintshaver.com/; watch YouTube videos on this. Expensive to buy but might find one on e-bay. Otherwise, rental tool stores carry this.

    As I said, try the rental stores. The one near me carries this.
