my dads shed in his yard is in need of some drastic repair. just short of tearing it down and starting from scratch, i would like to know what type of scrapers/sanders would you recommend to refinish his shed. too much work for a hand held wire brush and i want to keep purchases to a minimum.

this will be an early fall project. too damn hot now to do anything on this shed

replacing it with a modern wooden shed would be ideal but the park he lives in every shed is a metal one so i guess a wooden one wouldnt be allowed

I would go with a cup brush on a 4 1/2" grinder. Get the worst of it and use some rust converter. ... -converter There are other brands as well but you want to get the rust stopped as well as possible.
