I've got 16 TRV's and rads to change over and move and every one of them has pipe with the dreaded white paint on them, and some will need chrome removed from the pipes for soldering. They will not be going back exactly in the same place, so the pipe will need prepd and the paint removed first before making new connections, some of which will be soldered, and the towel rads are going back in new chrome pipe.

Rather than getting the file/gas torch/footprints out and around the pipe, has anyone used the tool in the post's title from Monument? This is one chore I find annoying and looking for a quicker solution.

I just thought that after all these years, that someone would have invented a modern attachment that would have made this chore quicker and easier than grips and emery paper, especially for chrome plate removal.

Yeh as ric said. Don't use the tool to remove paint as it cloggs the teeth. But using it purely for Chrome and it's decent.
