I am looking for the best way to remove paint (possibly lead based) from my fireplace.

Also, the best way to test for lead based paint.

The easiest way of doing your job is to use the PEEL AWAY I product which will do the removal in one application. The system is always keeping the paint in a wet or damp state so there is no airborne lead dust

I've read that heat guns actually create tons of lead dust on that type of paint (any heating is supposed ot be bad). I'm planning to use Peel Away or Ready Strip on the lead-based trim in my house, and I'm glad to read that my safety rationale makes sense.

You've got to get the lead over something like 250 to 270°F to vapourize it enough to be dangerous. A medium seting on most heat gund is OK
