I would be keen to hear of anyones experience of using an ultrasonic bath for cleaning reels ? Or indeed any thoughts on the subject ? I've notice some are available for a quite reasonable price .

I bought an 'Aldi special offer' one a few years ago ... and once you've found the water temperature/detergent solution mix that works for you ... they are invaluable ... not just for reel parts, but clogged up old fountain pens, air rifle pellets, small motorcycle parts, etc.

We used to use them many many years ago during my apprentiship to clean Rotring draughting ink pens, they worked very well. I know that they are also used for cleaning jewelry.

Same as for cleaning an airbrush for instance.
