Now that is a cool toy. I could find so many uses for that!

On the Ultrasonic cleaner, I have found out that it is important to rinse and dry the steel parts ASAP and I use a fogging oil on them.

They are so clean (hydroscopic), they try to suck moisture out of the air and tend to get surface rust very quickly.

So far I've used mine for only cleaning carburetors. Simple Green and water was used per the instructions that came with the unit. I kept cleaning and cleaning until the cleaner would run for one hour without darkening the solution. I must say the first few times the solution will darken in less than 10 minutes . . . and maybe 'darken' is a bit too polite, because the first time the solution was more black than just darkened. I normally use a solution temperature on the high side, and cleaned the 'crud' off the outside of the carburetor with lacquer thinner before it went into the drink. My goal was to let the US cleaner do its thing on the passages that would be otherwise inaccessible, and not have to clean the easy to remove the 'crud' on the outside. On the internet there are parts baskets that look like small spheres made of stainless screening. The spheres open to allow the adding the small parts, and then lock closed. All you have to do is to throw the basket into the cleaner, and the parts don't disappear.

If anyone has used an ultrasonic cleaner with Evapo-Rust let us know the results.

David,

Due to the slowness of the Evapo rust, it might be better to soak in it for the prescribed time then pop it in to the UC.

I have a current trial in process and I will report on it.

Thanks

Bill

Evapo works much better if you can keep it warm.

Big Kev,

I might try the heat cycle on the UC then turn on the cleaner after a day or so.

Thanks

Bill

And here is where I am today. Little more filing and sanding and then tackle the water pump area.

It is Lab Metal which is basically an aluminum air dry epoxy. No mixing or added catalyst.

It will conduct electricity, you can plate it and fill pits in parts you want to powder coat.

It is about the consistency of tooth paste and hardens quickly.

Sands and files easily. In the can you have to keep it covered with their solvent or else it will harden.
