Hahahaha Billy... it sounds as if your neurons could use a good ultrasonic cleaning to remove the heavy accumulation of amyloid beta plaques, tau tangles, and Liberal Democrat propaganda.

Your deranged mind is probably confusing ultrasonic cleaning with electrolysis rust removal, which can cause hydrogen embrittlement in springs and hardened parts. But the problem is reversible, if you know how.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

There are many ultrasonic cleaners on the market. Any recommendations? I don't intend to clean brass.

I bought a L&R commercial grade ultrasonic cleaner almost 20 years ago, top quality stuff but I see the prices have gone way up, even on Ebay. My unit has a heater as well and is big enough for a double receiver. It works beautifully but I'm not sure most people would be able to justify the cost today.

I got this one but it was not as expensive then either. I got it so I could do barrels as part of their prep for rust bluing. It has made a big difference .

Well, don't get suckered like I did. I bought one off of ebay that was heated, timer, etc. Held a gallon for capacity. But it wasn't nearly as powerful as claimed and the price was too good to be true.

I've been stalking for one at the university surplus but no luck yet.

Look for old dental offices that are closing. They use them and have ones with enough power to do the job. I’ve bought a dipole this way for $100.00 each. New they would be nearer $1,000.00 each. But make sure they work. Put a ball of aluminum foil in them and turn it on. Will bounce that ball all over place place and quickly build up heat. If the ball does not move it is nit working properly even if it sounds like it is. Don’t ask how I know.

Look at the Lyman Turbo Sonic Cleaner 6000 at Midway. It’s on sale for $290.00. I just use the Lyman 2500 and it’s on sale for $106.00. My 2500 cleaned the locks I began this thread with in 16 minutes.

Perhaps a dumb question: as I won't use it often and also don't have much storage space, can a larger part like a receiver be cleaned in a smaller unit by leaving the lid open and running it through twice, with one end sticking out of the solution?

Not a “dumb” question at all. If it’s a SXS or O/U the whole action will fit inside the basket. A longer action, such as a repeater, will probably not. I see no reason why part of it couldn’t stick out of the water. And yes, it will run with the lid off. The lid is handy to help keep the water warm.
