I have been considering buying an ultrasonic cleaner rather than a tumbler partly so that all the lead from the primer gets washed away in the solution rather than remaining in the media dust in a tumbler (Muir had a friend who had found this to be a source of sighnificant lead exposure).
There has already been an excellent thread on different cleaning and set-up routines but my questions are different.
Rather than get one of the 700ml small cleaners (around £30 on e-bay) which can only handle a dozen or so cases at a time and have quite small transducers I was thinking of getting a larger unit that I can use to do more cases at a time AND my sound moderators from time to time. Looking at the moderator dimensions this suggests a 2.5l unit which are available from about £80.
Hence my questions are:
1. Has anyone used an ultrasonic cleaner on their moderator?
2. Does the heater function on these larger units aid cleaning results?
3. Do the larger transducers improve cleaning performance? The unit I am considering has a 170w transducer vs 70w or less on small units, but then there is more liquid to agitate?
Any relevant experience would be much appreciated.
