Hey Alan, I was wondering if you use an ultrasonic cleaner for your reel hobby? If I had to guess I would think you would. I'm gonna start looking into them, and was wondering if you had any recommendations or cautions for me? What type of solvent do you use? Thanks
dude, you're getting sucked into this stuff pretty deep, aren't you! ok, so here's the deal. i got an ultrasonic cleaner, filled it with green soap and used it for a year. worked great! very time consuming. then realized that the reels that i was just cleaning reels for guys were just coming back dirty all over again. it was pointless because these guys were not taking care of their reels. to use the alcoholics anonymous speak, i was just enabling them. it's still in my garage and i haven't used it in a year. now i clean reels with an old toothbrush. if that won't do the job, then it's just too bad. if they have to go through the ultrasonic cleaner, i'd have to tack on another $20 and i don't want to do that.
now, a good friend of mine has 6 senators that are trashed. i'm going to pick a day when my wife is away all day and i'm going to throw them into the dishwasher. let's just hope that i don't get busted. alan
