Default Electronic Bearing Cleaner

I'm looking for one of those battery powered bearing cleaner. One of those that vibrates the water or cleaner through the bearings for a really good cleaning. Thanks!

You can get an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner..... Mine died, it was old and I inherited it from my Mother.... Keep saying I'm going to get a new one, still haven't....

I have one and it needs a lid. Splashes out. I cut a piece of foam and just set it on top.

Default parts cleaner

I use an ultrasoninc jewelery cleaner from Harbor Freight.

http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...temnumber=3305

Tip: Fill the ultrasonic cleaner with water, then use motor spray or other solvent in an empty paint jar, baby food jar or whatever. The sonic waves travel through the water, through the glass and into the more expensive solvent. Just be sure to use a lid on the parts jar or keep the water level below the rim of the jar. Really cuts down on clean up too.

HF has a local store here in Minneapolis, so it was easy to acquire.
