I originally put this in the off topic section but it occurs to me in the upheaval of the forum revamp, it might have got overlooked and this is probably the better forum anyway:

I've been trying to strip some paint off wood. It's softwood and is outside. The paint stripper has removed some but there is a lot of the paint which seems determined to stay on.

Should I switch to abrasives? If yes, then which grit would you recommend (I have a Festool Rotex sander.) Here is a pic of the problem.

Thanks in advance.

Depends what you want to do with it. If repainting just get it smooth enough and then paint with primer. No need to scrub off stuff that's well stuck down
