What is the best way to completely remove Gold Lacquer? I tried using Brasso but it's not taking enough off. Is there a Chemical I can purchase that will strip it completely off?

Hey Dave,

What worked for my was the Kaboom Foam-Tastic, it comes in a can like scrubbing bubbles, but completed removed the gold finish from both an Old Type and NEW.

Good luck

Easy Off Heavy Duty will remove the lacquer, leaving the gold plating intact. Are you trying to remove the gold plating as well?

Yes Remove the Gold plating as well. I want it down to the metal underneath. Completely different razor Brian hehe but I might do it with that one too.

Personally, I would just take it to my buffing machine, but I'm assuming you are not in possession of one. Therefore.... T-wax rubbing compound if you want to do it by hand using an abrasive paste rather than chemicals. I'm a little weary of chemicals. Leave it too long and you can dissolve the entire product.

I wish I had a buffing machine. I've got The handle soaking now in CLR. That has helped in the past

Lacquer is completely soluble in acetone, and acetone will never bother the gold plate. You should have asked sooner since brasso is slightly abrasive and you removed gold by using it- acetone being a solvent is never abrasive. If the razor doesn't contain plastic parts you're good for the acetone bath. Just put the parts in the bath and let it sit. Overnight isn't too long, but it'll probably happen much sooner. Be careful of the container used; glass and metal are OK, plastic may melt.

Ashley doesn't have any of that bumming around the house? Isn't it the primary ingredient in nail polish remover?

Any good paint store or hardware store should have it, even a big box store.
