Ultra sonic side plates came out great. I will have to invest in one soon.

Hi Keith --

Yes, on both the Simple Green & Purple Degreaser -- it is half water and half solution.

This can be experimented with to suit your applications -- but this is what I have found works the best for me.

And the mixture is recycled -- generally get 12 to 20 cleanings out pf a batch.  Just use an old double boiler collander set of pans.  And I think you could also filter the solution to get much more.  I generally just get rid of it after 20 reels -- and chalk it up to operational expense.  I use large mouth plastic containers -- but glass works better since the sonic waves are transmitted better through glass then metal -- thus a better cleaning job.

The key is a good solution, and a solid, professional piece of equipment with SS & no heating element to go haywire.  The ultrasonic action generates a little heat anyway.  Mine has a 6 minute timer on it.  Just right to disassemble the next reel -- or for a cup pf coffee.

Also, the Simple Green brand of purple degreaser does not work nearly as well as the ZEP.

Best,

Fred

A suggestion, stay on one part of the forum when you have a question. Asking the same question in 4 or 5 places will not get you a quicker answer. All posts are available to be read by all members.

Hi Fred,

Great job on the reel.  It's special to take something from the refuse heap and return it to useful, beautiful condition.

I really like your cleaning station, seems to do a great job in a very limited amount of time.

and to you....Best!
