For cleaning with an ultrasonic cleaner - what's the best additive? Will be cleaning SxS parts.

Be very wary of the cleaning additives supplied for US cleaners. They are REALLY good at removing any oxides including hardening colour!!!! I stripped an action and parts of all colour the first time through and haven't made the same mistake since!
The chemicals are great for jewellery but not so well advised for gun parts!
I use good old dishwasher powder or even washing-up liquid.

Distilled water is probably a good idea if your water has minerals that may discolor your project.

Thanks everyone. Harbor Freight's quality has made light years advancements of late. Their ICON line of hand tools are superb. Just didn't know about these units. Good first hand info.

You will like it.
If you start out with heated water, and then use the heater function, when the pieces are done being vibrated, they will be quite hot.
Not boiling, but hot.
So as soon as you lift the basket out of the tank, you’ll see that they flash dry, that’s why you have to have whatever protectant you want to use near at hand when you take them out of the tank.

Don’t forget to plan for that. Helps avoid malfunction.
