Thx Joe. I’m taking risk re screws just getting the stock off with a screwdriver, let alone an action dismantle. A gunsmith I’m probably not…..

If I might ask, while we're in a discussion about ultrasonic cleaners, who has owned and used a Harbor Freight unit? Pros ... cons?

I'm planning on purchasing an ultrasonic cleaner, mostly for doublegun actions, and want the best bang for the buck, but don't really want to spend $600 or more on a unit I likely won't use but a few times a year.

Stan, I have a small unit I use for cleaning small bits. Tank is only 3.5" by 5.75" but it works as intended. The 2.5 liter unit for $85 should suit you. If it doesn't, you haven't lost much. Amazon has a similarly priced 3 liter unit and if it doesn't suit you, send it back. Gil

There are people on YouTube that test all the various ultrasonic cleaners.

For shotgun actions you don’t need a multiple wave source ultrasonic cleaner.

I like the heater, and I just run multiple cycles changing the soapy water.

They will clean an action cleaner than you want.

You will have to lubricate and protect every surface in the entire action to keep it from rusting in any kind of humidity. And I’m talking hours, not days.

Cleans the crap out of the engraving! I bought one from Harbor Freight to clean up the Grade C Remington I got from RedofTx. I works fine but pre-heat your water mix if you want hot as it takes a long time.

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.

When I was with Chrysler we had a set up that used a refrigated cloradane bath as a cleaner. The cleaner was ok, but hard to control but the big problem was the strength of the unit. It removed the carbon nodules from the casting leaving a very rough surface.

Anyone ever use Brownells water displacing oil? I bought a gallon years ago and tried it after putting an entire action in the USC. Got rid of the water but seemed to leave a film on the steel.


My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.

Rob; I have wondered about the same thing about the Brownells water dispacing oil and I hope that someone who has used it will reply to your question and also to my question: is the Brownell water displacing oil any better than buying a gallon of WD-40--which originally was made as a water displacer?

Ballistol should work as well and comes in smaller sizes than a gallon
