I rather think you have two options another Ultrasonic, or a tumbler/rumbler.My ultrasonic cleaner is faulty, and this has led me to considering moving to an alternate way of cleaning my brass. So, what are people finding to be good/effective/least hassle etc ?
A small wet steel pins tumbler at the start of the process and then ultrasonic clean as the last step in prepping my brass. I run with batches of 50 x 260 Rem cases and try to keep the 50 together for their entire live.My ultrasonic cleaner is faulty, and this has led me to considering moving to an alternate way of cleaning my brass.

Only had one issue and that was when I tumbled them outdoors when it was barely above freezing so the wax (well lanolin/alcohol mix)was harder than usual and it took a bit longer to get it all off round the shoulder/neck junction. It may take longer to do the actual cleaning than an US but I leave it on when I go out so that time doesn't matter. It takes a second to tip the brass in and less than 5 min to retrieve 100 cases and they go straight into the loading box, no need to dry or rinse etc.How does the dry media get on with sizing wax residue ?
What problems Bob ?I dislike the problems with pins
got no complaints with mine either, I got a 3.7 litre one from evilbay, two caps of sea clean cleaner and they come out like new, they don't have that rough finish you get from media/or pins.Can easy drop your cases into my u/s. But you might get to like shiny
