ultrasonic cleaning before paint

Post  david samson on Sun Dec 12, 2010 8:07 am

a few days ago i decided to experiment with using an ultrasonic cleaner with soap in it to wash model before paint...







scrub a dub it worked beautiful, i hope i have shared something of use with my fellow modellers
after seeing the final results i discovered the machine removed all embedded dust powder and sanding residue
that i swear you wouldn't get scrubbed off without breaking your etch affraid

That is a cool looking little gadget. It is one of those things I have heard people that have them talk about them, and I always end up where I am right now. Thinking I need to get one for myself what with all the shelf queens I have that are buried under about a half an inch of permanent dust Rolling Eyes .

I've also heard of people using these to clean and maintain airbrushes, has anyone tried this with any success ?
