Stripping Paint from Small-ish Parts

I'll be stripping paint from various steel 110 parts (drums, hubs, etc). I've used methyl chloride and lacquer thinner. I've really looking for a dip or submersion solution. Something in container I can just close up and reuse. Also, it would reduce clean up.

What have you guys used successfully?

Not really a paint remover...But, When I used the molasses water solution for rust removal on brackets and small parts it also lifted the paint and it came off easily with a pressure washer. Stinks really bad don't have it near the house like I did. Beats having the toxic methyl crap burn you. Takes 1-2 weeks, you will have to use a rust inhibitors like POR metal ready to stop flash rust after cleaning off the residue.

For big Rusty parts like drums and hubs when I was actually working on these pieces usually I would just use aircraft stripper to take the paint off but frankly the amount of work involved is ridiculous. Now for anything larger that I can't fit into a paint can I just pay to have blasted. It's easier cleaner and the result is so much better.

The small stuff that I can fit inside of a paint can I use Berryman carburetor and parts cleaner. It comes in a paint can and has a small dipping basket. load up the parts put it in there and it pretty much takes off all paint all Grease everything.

I always thought that possibly I can buy a couple cans of this stuff and transferred into a larger 5 gallon steel paint can for the bigger stuff. McCain has to be sealed when in use and not in use because the chemicals will evaporate and they stink like hell

if the rough sand blasting finish isn't deisred we use Berkebile 2+2 Gum Cutter.
Cleans incredibly and will remove paint.
