    Tumbler or Ultrasonic?

    Hello.

    For cleaning general use grime off of small parts, up to rearset size, would you suggest a tumbler or an Ultrasonic cleaner? I can hand clean but the left over parts in the small details are a pig. I guess a parts washer with a brush may work as well, but not for corrosion and surface rust.

    Any thoughts? Cheers.

    I would go for an ultrasonic as you can clean carbs, engine parts, switchgear, calipers etc etc where you need them spotless without damaging the surface and use a wire brush on an electric drill for removing surface rust and corrosion on items you're going to paint.

    Definitely ultrasonic.

    Thanks. I'll buy the parts washer also. I'll end up getting the tumbler at some point I imagine for dustier items. Anyone got any suggestions on the medium?

    I use WURTH carb cleaner, WURTH brake cleaner and a bench wirewheel to clean up most items. I'd love to use an ultrasonic....one day maybe?
