I'm getting ready to redo my kitchen and with it the old windows. I do not want to replace them with new windows, but I'm not looking forward to days spent hand stripping all the wood from the pane to the frame.

A contractor that visited the house for other reasons had mentioned places that dip the wood to strip the paint. This sounds much easier and also decreases the number of slivers I will get.

I've been all over the internet but can't seem to find companies that do this.

Can any one help? Specically in the Chicago area.
