    Hi

    I use the Lidl/Aldi equivalents which work well enough for me, over a couple of cycles.
    I cant remember the frequency they work at but looking at this aimed at rings etc. may not be the same as those that will do watch straps and the like which are less 'delicate' - like brass cases........
    When they are in Lidl/Aldi about the same in price or even less.

    Way to small and unlikely to last to long,

    Have a good look at eBay, it may set you back 3x that amount but well worth it IMO

    I use a James 7000s Ultrasonic Cleaner (Argos number 290/9240 40).

    It does about 25 cases at a time, takes about 5 minutes and they come out sparkling on the outside and pretty clean inside. You have to give the thing a break between batches though (as per manufacturers instructions). I suspect that might be why some people have problems. I've put around 250 cases through mine in the last 6 months.

    I also find that I get the best results when i use James' own cleaning fluid 'Seaclean'. I buy mine from Maplin but its availabe from all the on-line sellers.

    My experience is that it doesn't work unless I use the fluid. Having said that I have a friend who uses a Hornady ultrasonic cleaner and swears by his own blend of citric acid and goodness knows what else. The cases do tarnish slightly after cleaning but that doesn't bother me, I oven dry them then re-load.

    Each to their own.......

    i use a Lidl one, cost the same
    similar size
    I can get around 20-30 .270 cases in or best part of 50 .222 cases

    mine runs on 10 min max cycles
    normally do two or three of those and the water is black!

    for 20 you cant go wrong
    I cant be doing with some massive industrial thing lying around not being used and this one is small enough to sit in a cupboard
