shit no, I love them. I use WD40 and filter and reuse it. I almost certainly have the exact one you're talking about - you'll outgrow it soon enough

Oh no, the last thing I need is another reason to go to Harbor Freight or Northern Tool. /slowly backs out of thread

They work great on scuba gear as well -- regulator parts, tank valves, stuff that needs deep cleaning every now and then.

Stupid question alert:


Is this a once in a while cleaning method, or can it be used to clean your gun every time you field strip clean it?

I clean my most of my parts in it every time.

I wonder if I can put my NIB carrier in it. Shooting suppressed has made it nasty and full of soaked in carbon.
Link Posted: 1/12/2015 10:48:37 PM EST
Is this the same type you use for cleaning brass? Not sure if it matters.
Link Posted: 1/12/2015 10:50:18 PM EST
Something with moving parts from Harbor Freight? It will probably shit itself after 3-5 uses.

I've used the lyman. Seems to do a decent job.

I put my 5.45 Nickel Boron BCG in it after I shoot suppressed or shoot at all....or just when I decide to clean it.
Link Posted: 1/12/2015 10:55:52 PM EST
Just be sure to lube those parts well before reusing. The cleaners are great but they take all the grease and oil with them

Guess I got a good one - still works after cleaning thousands of pistol cases.

Only gripes are it is a little too small for cleaning lots of brass and the timer needs to run longer than 8 minutes though.

My harbor freight is so deep in the ghetto Ithat I don't even think about what I would buy unless I'm carrying an AR.

Be careful using flammable liquids or solvents in ultrasonic cleaners. The ultrasonic action generates heat, even without a heating function. This is why the manufacturers discourage the use of flammables in them. Although it's unlikely to ignite, and it's mostly liability especially with these smaller consumer units.


Try ZEP "Industrial Purple".

I have one, used to to clean gas r/c engines. What solution are people using for gun parts?

Would it be ok for a Glock frame?

I bet those would work wonders on fishing reel parts, particularly the bearing which are small and a real bitch to clean,.

Is there a good site to learn about basic solution formulas?
Link Posted: 1/12/2015 11:38:41 PM EST
Link Posted: 1/12/2015 11:50:26 PM EST
I have thought about one.

My biggest question is what do you do with the solution once it gets all dirty?

He's not wrong is he?

Harbor freight is where you go if you need to buy a tool that only needs to last for one job. Maybe 2 if you are lucky.
Link Posted: 1/12/2015 11:55:39 PM EST
I've had one for a year or so. I used to clean pistol slides ar bcg any other small parts. Works awesome first time I used on my bcg water was pitch black. couldn't be easier to use.

They don't ship to Canada.





I want one of those cleaners real bad.

I thought I read somewhere about ultrasonic cleaning possibly causing damage through cavitation or something.

Looked briefly, I see aluminum mentioned as a bad idea due to hydrogen embrittlement. I know about hydrogen embrittlment in steel during electrophoretic rust removal so Idk if steel is susceptible as well. Paging experts.

Surgical instruments and other metal objects are cleaned in units 100's of times more powerful than this one every day.
Link Posted: 1/13/2015 12:42:50 AM EST
It has for me, got a bunch of .50 cal brass from the 40s and would tumble the heck out of it but still wasn't happy. Using this got them clean however it doesn't polish brass.

Once their reloaded shine good. Newer brass it does a nice job on. Like being able to dump the water and not deal with tumbling media.

Right that's why I wonder why I keep running into reading this. Now surgical instruments don't have the same structural requirements and consequences of gun parts so maby that's it.

Got something similar to it for Christmas......works great. For carbs do you still have to take them apart or can you just stick the whole thing in there? Any damage to the seals/gaskets?

Cleaner I would say yes inside the primer pocket as well. But it does not polish the brass like a tumbler. I still like fitz or nu-finish car polish in my tumbler media for polishing.
