    If it was built in the 1930's, it would be normal to have lead paint on it.

    Who told you it doesn't, and what makes them think so?

    if you are sure that there is no lead present then there is no problem with burning off. this would be my preference due to the condition.
    hope this helps

    If you really know for sure that lead is not a factor here, you can using a heat gun strip the doors, then after sanding apply either one or two coats of aluminium primer.

    is there any reason why you would use aluminium primer and not just a good quality water based wood primer?

    i personally would go down the dulux weathersheild route as this is a microporus product which lets the wood breath and has a 8 year guarantee if applied to manufacturers specification. leyland microporus is also a good paint system.

    Then you will first need to apply a knotting agent then, aluminium primer should be the product of choice here.

    i would personally rather apply the knotting to the knots and follow a microporus system as the aluminum primer will seal the wood preventing it from breathing.

    Do you think I could get away with just sanding these parts?
