magicmartin: Will a small ultrasonic jewellery cleaner work?
Emilio Marranzino: take a look at this company "ARCHOIL" they have a good nano-lubricant and rust remover. The lube is a Potassium Boron based grease it has a really low washout rate so the life of the grease is ultra long lasting.... good luck
AJ Regester: Do you put the degreaser in the ultrasonic cleaner full strength or do you dilute it? Have you noticed any etching on the tank of your ultrasonic cleaner?
Mark Chen: nice video! one thing you may want to consider is to "de-gass" your solution before you drop your components in. I believe the manufacturer typically recommends the user to run the ultrasonic cycle for 10 minutes prior to adding their components in.
RetailSecurityWorld: Pity you couldnt clean your guts out after drinking that sugary cola lol
Michael Kennedy: Ardrox 185 is another great cleaner for " ferrous " metals only. It removes grease, sulfidation , scaling , carbon build up etc. Its highly alkaline and used extensively in aviation. Something like chains and cassettes would be done in about 10 to 15 min at approx 185 def F.
Labizi Bello: Hi , what other bicycle components can be washed in the machine ?, axes , bullets , turnbuckles ?
Joe Redmond: How do you think this process would work with Paraffin waxed chains.
Vincent Manuel: Have you ever thought about using a methylated spirits for your parts once you have blown out all of the roller joints? The metho will displace any other liquid and will then evaporate off quickly, even faster when heat is applied (hair dryer). I use this same method for cleaning brass rifle cases and I have been doing it for years. You can reuse the same metho over and over again. You should give it a go, I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how well it works.
Crocellian: Use a real solution. There are dozens out there. There are some home brews that work. Avoid anything with ammonia if you have aluminum parts.
Citric acid is all that was in your solution. Not great at cleaning and very, very hard on metal.
Try the old soap, salt and vinegar mix. Google around.
Mehran Mahdi: materials stretch when heated....doing this periodically may stretch and damage you components
koDiacc Cycling: will any ultrasonic cleaner do the work?
MrKlyushin: Hello! They say that if factory lube that's inside the chain is washed off say with WD-40 the process of chain stretching will become quicker .... While using ultrasonic this grease will be gone ... The question is how to restore the lube? Will the simple chain lubing work? Or you need to boil chain in oil so that lube can enter deep parts of chain? THX for you respond!!!
Daniel Wøhlk (Solsixxa): i also use it to re-oil the chain. Using dry telflon oil. It gets in everywhere! just like new one!
creativedave: Hi @The Subjective Cyclist Review , I'm very interested in obtaining one of these. Now that a few years have passed, do you still like the product? How many liters is the one in the video? Could you fit chain rings in there as well? Thank you for making this vid.
Charles Rinehart: A pricey cleaner here at $160.
BATMANsNSXGTO: Is this the same one that you can buy on Ebay? Pretty reliable unit?
Bobcatt22: The background music is distracting. Otherwise, good video.
Wingmantx: Great video. It cracks me up when you pull out the simply orange bottle. LOL
scottybee915: It looks like the damage to the anodized finish may have come from vibrating against the other components while cleaning. Way cool ultrasonic cleaner- who is the manufacturer?
