What about bolts and carrier groups? Handgun slides? What are you using for the solution? I tried a magazine with an aluminum extension...really dulled the finish. We used Simple Green in the tank.they Are good for so much more. I’ve thrown lowers, uppers, handguns all types of parts and things in em.
But the basket the pieces sit in is metal... ???One thing to watch: If you are putting coated pieces in it, make sure they don't touch any metal inside the cleaner as it will remove the coatings. My suppressor has a few zebra stripes after the cleaner took them off.
Simple Green is no bueno with aluminum. I learned that the hard way too.What about bolts and carrier groups? Handgun slides? What are you using for the solution? I tried a magazine with an aluminum extension...really dulled the finish. We used Simple Green in the tank.
i got the same one a few years back. Works fine. No complaints yet.
I recently picked up the same one from HF. Its identical to the Lyman Turbo Sonic for about half the price (about $60 after 20% off coupon). The Lyman is truly identical...I'm pretty sure its just an re-label from the same Chinese factory. The only difference is the Lyman comes with an interior basket and the HF has a "tray".i got the same one a few years back. Works fine. No complaints yet.
As far as cleaning solution, been using the Hornady stuff.
I use water and vinegar. I put my cleaning solution in a glass bowl with a lid to keep it separate from the tank of water. The water in the tank allows the frequency to go through the bowl and that way I don’t have to dump or use a tank of cleaning solution. Plus my cheap harbor freight unit doesn’t do very well on the very edges because the transducer is in the middle.I'd like to know how you are using Ultrasonic Cleaners. What should not be cleaned in one? What solution are you using? I'm worried about damaging the coatings on different pieces and parts.
We have run actions, bolts, & such in ours for this. Take note about the coating comments but we use ours for about anything.Anyone drop their action in before spinning a new barrel on to get all the grim and debris out from use over time?
But he lost his vision, forgot who he was....and later died of cancer right? That stuff is NASTY.There was a time when "a guy I know" was able to get PERC by the gallon jug from a dry-cleaning shop. It worked very well when cleaning parts/trigger groups, and the like.
