    Morning all,

    Seriously considering an ultrasonic cleaner for chains cassettes small parts etc.

    Looking for advise on them and any recommendations on what to buy (or to avoid)

    We have one in work,used it twice for cleaning my chain.Waste of money and time,chain in a old container with petrol and a paintbrush does the exact same job and it only takes a minute.Save youre hard earned cash.

    I have 2 relatively cheap ultra sonic cleaners from aldi/lidl. About 30 euro each. I use them to clean my airbrushes and occasionally the wife's jewellery. I find them brilliant. I can scrub my airbrushes to within an inch of their lives and am still amazed at what's left in the bottom after an ultra sonic clean.

    They are cheap as chips for the entry level ones so certainly worth picking one up.
