Hi Will,


I use the electrolysis method for cleaning up my "Old Delta Machines"


It sure is a work saver.


Here's a couple of before/after shots of a Drill Press head casting.

This head took a bit longer than normal to clean as I suspect it came out of a metal working shop.

It took about 20 hours in "The Tank" to get it that clean.


I'm using a 25 Amp charger from one of those battery back up sump pumps, with a car battery in the circuit.


The charger was a freebie from my neighbor, and makes a big difference compared to my old 6 Amp charger.

That is my small parts cleaning tank.


The same neighbor just gave me a big orange plastic laundry cart on wheels which will probably fit a complete Uni-Saw.
