    Default Good Ultrasonic Cleaner?

    Looking for a bench sized ultrasonic cleaner good for carbs etc. Saw this one on EBay (China)

    I just bought that same one...only I paid quite a bit more. That same unit is sold by quite a few different sellers. That's the cheapest I've seen it. I haven't used mine yet so can't give a review. It seems decent enough though.

    Please let us know how they work. My Harbor Freight one is only capable of 1 carb at a time, the one advertised is not much more than the HF one was.

    6L might be a little small. I have a 10L unit made by Prosonix in the U.S. and sometimes wish it was bigger. Try to find one made in the U.S. There's some nice used ones on ebay.

    That 6L jobby is big enough to do two carb bodies at the same time.

    I have a similar (stainless, heated, arrangement, construction type) but smaller unit (around 2-3L) and am very satisfied with it.

    What's the proper cleaning solution for application for cleaning carb parts etc.?

    Paraphrasing an earlier post of mine in a different thread; Start with distilled/demineralized water (filtrated tap water is ok as well, as long as it chalk/lime has been removed) and add some plain old dish soap (liquid) - the trick is to bring down the surface tension of the solution.

    Also, heat to ~50C. You can go higher, but in my case, that requires me to replace boiled off water from time to time if I have many pieces in there. I prefer not to babysit it, but as said, experiment and find out what works best for you.

    You can always invest in some special stuff later on. Personally I didn't find any need for it so far.
