Deepand Dark: I have had one for 3 years I clean my scuba regs in it and Bike /Car bits. I use Citric acid and water never use the plastic insert. The water does get hot and I have no damage to the Stainless steel bowl. It cost me 25 euros. If it only lasts 3 years I will buy another one.
gavin fitzsimons: do we need to clean out bullets
Verd Gj: that thing does only have one transducer. It is never going to clean your shells adequate enough. Besides. These cleaners are made from aluminium using vinegar is thus not wise. It will dissolve the aluminium
strake750: They don't look much cleaner to me?
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 emitter...
hortenIX: 1 cup hot water, 1/4 cup vinegar, 1 tea spoon fairy, 1 tea spoon salt..
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.
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!
John Ras: 1 qt water- to 1 cup vinegar - 1 tbls salt -1 tbls dish soap,dawn work well
John Ras: That's too much vinegar!
covoniasweetpea: does this cleaner heat the water aswell
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.
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.
RoeStalker: Glad you enjoyed the video
RoeStalker: It is good to know. I should have read the instructions :-)
