"Use #2 To Grind Paint Off:"

From: R. Becker  magsters@primenet.com

Need to grind paint off a junction box to insure a good bond, but don't have a wire wheel or abrasive bit handy. Keep a piece of # 2 wire in your truck. Cut a piece about 3" long, leaving about 3/4" of copper showing. Flare the ends of the strands slightly, put it in your drill and go to town on that paint. I used this trick today for the first time and it worked very well
