1920's bungalow restoring wood ceiling

I've decided(much my to my husbands dismay)to attempt to restore the painted wood plank ceiling in the home we just purchased. The ceiling is in the enclosed 3 season porch. After many failed attempts 5f5, heat gun, I opted to sand the paint off which gave a great result however it's the pesky line in the crevices that I just can't seem to get out. I have tried everything hand scraping, a dremel,sanding, paint stripping,dental tools :D,steel wool,wire bristles. I am so close I just can't get this paint out. The crevices arn't wide but deep and I just can't seem to find the right tool to get in there. I have come this far and I just can't give up. I have been to the hardware store down the street so many times I have been given and honoary work shirt :p !!! Please help any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
