Shannon Fraiser: For anyone saying they don't look (cleaner) I promise they are and your
still suppose to tumble your cartridge after sonic cleaning to polish the
brass because sonic cleaners will not do that lol
binkyboobosh1: Cheap tanks like this are a bit of fun, but a) they won't shift stubborn
dirt and b) they won't last very long. They are a good introduction to US
cleaning and may prompt you to buy a better tank in the £300 price range
which will really do the job.
AKAtheA: That basket is there for a reason, leaving things in direct contact with
the pan will significantly decrease the lifespan of the ultrasonic
Nevin Williams: I seldom see clips that show a degassing period after the solution is added
to the unit. Submerged air bubbles that form in liquids after they're
poured act as shock absorbers to the ultrasonic waves, keeping their energy
from cleansing. Adding the solution, stirring, then running the unit's
ultrasound for a few minutes (usually documented) will get rid of the air
bubbles. When putting the shells in, its important to take care not to
have air bubbles inside them, either.
To really see what the ultrasound unit is doing, let a shell soak in the
solution in a separate container. I know the vinegar is responsible for
most of the brightening and tarnish removal ultrasound or no.
hortenIX: 1 cup hot water, 1/4 cup vinegar, 1 tea spoon fairy, 1 tea spoon salt..
John Ras: 1 qt water- to 1 cup vinegar - 1 tbls salt -1 tbls dish soap,dawn work well
65BigNorm: Hi. Thanks for the vid will try it with vinegar. So far found that the
thing hasn't done too much with just dishwasher or washing-up liquid so
will try that first. If that soesn't work I'll go for a final solution
of red diesel or kerosene before it goes in the bin. By the way what music
was that on your vid?
marcelo oberauer: Anothel chinesse ploduct ;)
John Ras: Thanks for the video!
covoniasweetpea: does this cleaner heat the water aswell
John Ras: That's too much vinegar!
Simon Scerri: Without the basket you can damage the tank, will get alot of scratches I
OH cornplanter: I will have to try without the basket next time. I had not heard that using
the strainer basket causes loss in performance. Thanks for the tip.
OH cornplanter: I use a vinegar, distilled water, and few drops of dish soap for a few
cycles then follow up with distilled water and baking soda to neutralize.
My brass tarnishes almost immediately if I skip the last step. 15-20
minutes in a tumbler when dry really helps shine the outsides if
super-shiny brass is wanted. Nothing beats how the sonic cleaners work on
insides and primer pockets though.
museack: Like already mentioned, baking soda is to stop acidic action of vinegar.
Acid will attack copper in the brass alloy & weaken it.
Armeria GB Verrina: Silvercrest instructions state that the plastic basket actually absorb 1/3
of the device's power, yet it's safe to use it without the basket.
RoeStalker: It is good to know. I should have read the instructions :-)
tom smyth: Epic fail they don't look any cleaner lol
RoeStalker: Thanks for that info and glad you like the site and vids.
scottishbadboytracks: You cant go wrong for £20 got to love Lidl for a wee bargin now and then
LKDesign: As far as I know you should not put the objects directly onto the emitter
but in the included basket as the waves can damage the machine if not
travelling a certain distance.
521Bobcat: I Just rub sand into it. It works just as good.
rfuret: Hi, I use food grade citric acid (a tea spoon for 2 L of water ) in
conjunction with ordinary dishes hand-soap (a few drops)and hot water for
20min in a ultrasonic cleaner and I get very good results. Just rinse in
clean water to stop the effect of the citric acid.
WildAndLiving: no baking soda to nuterie the acid so it doesnt turn green
agung automall: naon busi motor teh ? sparkplug meureun !!
WildAndLiving: @gregloginway vinger is an acid and to netrulize it water and baking soda
tetrahydrofuran: Do you need to neutralize the acid by rinsing the brass with a bicarbonate
solution? My cases developed a slight tarnish after having been cleaned
with vinegar / water solution in an ultrasonic bath.
Matt Simpson: According to the instructions if you use the basket it reduces the cleaning
by 30%, so its actually better putting it straight onto the emitter.
balisticsquirel: You. Make. Me. Sad. Very first thing, you take OUT the plastic basket
that's there to raise the dirty items into the optimal spot in the liquid
for better washing, and to prolong the life of the machine since there
ideally shouldn't be anything touching the stainless tub.
deegz01: would this thing clean up brass door fittings? handles and barrel bolts?
Armeria GB Verrina: Excellent mate. I've got a Lidl ultrasonic cleaner just like yours and I
was looking for a cheap way to clean my 300 Blk brass. thank you!
RoeStalker: It still works so I will continue without the basket as it looks like it
works faster without it and I can squeeze more cases in :-)
Kevin White: Items in contact with the ultrasonic can cause the container to degrade and
you will eventually get pin holes in the bowl. I used an ultra sonic
cleaner when I used to service scuba regulators. But at £20 you can afford
to replace the whole thing. I paid over £200 for my first Ultrasound 20
years ago. Great website and Youtube channel BTW
Andrea Bray: how may brass can you clean in one time?
RoeStalker: I cant remember much from my chemistry lessons in school, but I am guessing
baking soda is a base that neutralize acid, but so is soap. My brass never
turned green as people say it would with vinegar only. What proportion
baking soda to vinegar should it be? Thanks, Greg
nanang firdausil: are vinegar can clean an busi motor..........? can you explain. thanks
RoeStalker: Sorry I dont know that
RoeStalker: I squeezed in 20 .308 cases. You can fit a bit more without plastic basket.
iang674: Where is the OTHER end of em lol
RoeStalker: Glad you enjoyed the video
RoeStalker: I do, but not always and never noticed any difference.
RoeStalker: @WildAndLiving I'll try baking soda, but they never turned green... because
of soap? Thanks for commenting
RoeStalker: No problem!
RoeStalker: Dont be sad :-D From my experience cases clean faster without the basket
and I can squeeze more in. For £25 I can afford another cleaner if that one
brakes, but is still going strong.
ballyharman: Great vid, thnx
RoeStalker: I have not used it for a while but now have heaps on dirty brass to be
cleaned... I only soaked clean brass in water with baking soda not actually
run the cleaner.
harrybert doener: I just figured out mine is broken. So what I can do is to put it on top of
the washing machine to give it a little shake =)
