Ultrasonic cleaner recommendations needed
Hello,

Do you use an ultrasonic cleaner for cleaning parts on your heli? If so, can you recommend a good brand? I found this:

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...p?&I=LXKTR7&P=7

Visually it appears to be inferior to some ultrasonic cleaners made with stainless steel, but maybe this is used by someone here?

Any opinions on the above item or a recommended ultrasonic cleaner would be appreciated.

Thanks

-Chris

It looks a bit small to be of much use.Proficient at turning cash and credit into smoke and noise!

While inexpensive, it has small dimensions:
SPECS:
Outer Case
Length: 4.1" (104mm)
Width: 2.4" (60mm)
Height: 2.0" (50mm)

Parts Bin
2.9" (73mm)
1.1" (29mm)
1.2" (30mm)

The MicroMark cleaner here is a bit pricier, but has a larger bin:

Includes a 2 inch deep, 3-1/2 inch x 6-1/2 inch stainless steel tank, parts basket, automatic shut-off and plastic cover.
This one might hold the blue one entirely lol

The Harbor Freight one actually looks to be of a useful size.

small ultrasonic tanks are not very good you need a good tank for good results i have been using ultrasonic tanks for 40 years i am a watchmaker and jeweler you will pay at least £600 for a decent tank
and the best results for cleaning come with pure ammonia washing up liquid and water and a good lid

i have problems with spelling

I have a $69 heated bath SS tank US cleaner that I got from Harbor Freight. It does a splendid job for THIS application. I've used it hundreds of times.

DO NOT use their powdered cleaner as it is too alkaline for most ali parts. It'll discolor them. Dawn dishwashing soap works fine.
