    I've been toying with the idea of getting a ultrasonic cleaner to try for pellet washing (and parts cleaner for those fiddly bits) as I've had the odd tin just lately that I feel could possibly benefit from a clean up. Has anyone tried an ultrasonic cleaner for this purpose? Any pros and cons?

    The pros are it cleans everything from your pellets

    The Cons are it eats the pellets also:( or at least mine did when I tried using it to wash pellets, the resulting pellets after 60secs had little holes on the surface

    It's what I was concerned of but did wonder if one designed to clean jewellery, dentures, glasses, etc might be more gentle? I'm guessing they run at a lower frequency?

    That would be spot on mate :) Will probably be round 1 of the UKs but I'm in no major rush, just something I fancied experimenting with :) Cheers :)

    I used it for some time and it really open holes and the pellets will become dark with oxide.

    If you want to try one use it plain water and dry them in the oven and lube them as soon as possible.

    There s no point in cleaning JSB s probably the only ones that need it are the Crossman.
