Default chisel question

I picked up a couple of Stanley short bevel chisel's.... not sure how new or old they are but they are heavy..... lot of metal in them. One has been used for something but the others are new. All of them are coated with a thick clear finish that is really stuck on. The one that was used did not even have the coating taken off nor did it come off in use. I started scraping it off on one of them and it does not want to come off!

The picture is not too clear but maybe that will help someone to see what I'm talking about. My guess is the former user found they did not work well and did not know about the coating or found out how hard it was to get off and said to heck with them......

I'm thinking of a power wire brush unless someone else has an idea????????

You were right - the photo didn't show much, but before I'd use a wire brush, I'd try some sort of solvent.

Try the scarey sharp method starting with a 400 grit and move upward from there.

Be sure to post the new score :~)

I did not try the sand paper yet..... that might be next.
I checked and I have no lacquer thinner so that is on hold until I go to the hardware store.

6" wire brush mounted on a grinder 0 Coating 1

I worked for about a minute and barely touch the coating! At that rate I will be about an hour a chisel...... I'm going to invest more it supplies getting the coating off then I spent on the chisel's.

Is this coating common now? I have never had this on any of the other tools I've purchased and will avoid tools with this on in the future......

You may have hardened it further with some of those chemicals
