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.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
