Am interested to know too. But I did have a school friend who's dad set their house on fire while doing this!

Oh dear shock I'm not sure if I trust myself to do that! Any idea how long it might take to strip say one rooms skirting boards using the heat gun?

Heat guns are fine and you don't get the smell, practice on a piece of painted timber you don't care about first, they can get super hot and scorch the timber.

I have looked online and found a heat gun, is it easy to use? And is it very effective at stripping paint from window frames and wooden doors?

I am about to move into a new flat which needs a lot doing to it and I hate DIY confused help
