John, I have your book Steam Paint removal and for some reason up until today I thought that you had to saw off the face plate on the steamer head even if you were going to use Vacuum attachments. I was thinking you still use that head as well. But looking at directions today they are in fact two different things. Is that correct? So you can either saw off the face plate and use the head to steam the paint off window casings etc. OR you can cut off that entire head and INSTEAD use the various Vacuum attachments with the adapter. Is that correct?

If I am planning to use the adapter method then all I really need to do with the original head is cut the entire thing off as in step 2 of the Steam handle adapter instructions?

Sawing off the plate is an alternative to making the adapter. It is not necessary to do this if you are going to make the adapter.

That's good to hear as that is what we ended up doing. For some reason when I read the instructions and even seeing the pictures I thought it was all part of ONE procedure.

Thanks
