We used to use them many many years ago during my apprentiship to clean Rotring draughting ink pens, they worked very well. I know that they are also used for cleaning jewelry.
Same as for cleaning an airbrush for instance.

That's sounds interesting could do with one for that .
Can you explain what your procedure is ?
Thanks

Hi Gary,

whatever you have to clean - make sure you use the right solvent. Put the solvent in a glass and drop the workpiece in it. Fill the ultrasonic bath with water and place the glass in. Solvent level within the glass should be roughly the same as the baths it is standing in. Dependent on the power of the ultrasonic bath the liquids become hot so don't leave it over night without checking from time to time.

That's pretty much it. :Hat:

There used to be a little Honda motorcycle called a CG125. It was very popular as a get to work bike and sold in huge numbers, but if laid up for the Winter with modern rubbish petrol in it a small drilling in the carburettor corroded and it was impossible to clean them. The only answer was a hugely expensive new carburettor!


Then sonic baths came along...an absolute godsend.

My wife has one at work that is not used at present and may never be. She told me my name is on it if it has to go. :Thumb: Fingers crossed. :Beg:
