integy makes a plastic tub thats powered by two AA batteries.

throw in your bearings, some motor spray and turn it on and it vibrates. it costs about $20. i found an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner at SharperImage, but it was like $80 i think. it does the same thing as the integy.

Do these things work pretty well? Because if I can just take all my bearings out of my car, put them in a tub & hit a button & have clean bearings. It beats cleaning each bearing, one-by-one.

yes they work. I have used them before especially when I was driving more off-road.

If you look in Walmart, Target, KMart or OddLot you can find them for $20 or less. You can even find them on eBay

The jewelry cleaner I have I found for $5 at a Walmart bargain bin.

I have also found them at flea markets or even tag sales.

You will have to hunt around, but they can be found for less than $20.

This link has a few:
