Thanks for the replies, I sprayed them with carb cleaner in a small jar and used the poormans US cleaner (I swirled them around in the jar for awhile). Dropped them in a jar of acetone last night and there they sit. Iíll hit them with a toothbrush and acetone later, then dawn and water rinse. That oughta get it. Thanks again

why Huh? whatever you use for initial soaking/cleaning, pure acetone is the perfect final rinse (for metal!) -- it leaves NOTHING on the surface

I'll throw my tow cents in the mix. I found that simple green and rescue rust in 2 to 1 works in my UC very well. I have yet to find grease that it doesn't remove. the Ultra Sonic cleaner is the key.

Joe

Joe,

Is this the stuff you are referring to:

Frank

Sorry Frank, It is called Evopo-rust and it's sold In Walmart, https://www.theruststore.com/Evapo-Rust-Gallon-P1C1.aspx And Amazon

Okay Joe, thank you.

Acetone Also will cause liver cancer. Check the Right to Know guide.

Naphtha will usually do the job and is easier to handle.

You mean if it contacts skin and seeps into your pores? Or by breathing in its fumes?

WD-40 also offers Specialist in a pump bottle form which is a milder product, I use in for the Lathe cleanup, it smells pleasant and does a decent job.

I think Mike has the best solution for cleaning reels Dawn, baking soda and water.

Ask Mike but I think that was his answer to cleaning Reel parts.
