With the price of health insurance now a days if a colonoscopy wasn't charged under "preventative" procedure, a 6' camera and compressor would come in handy for someone with colon cancer in their genetics.
Does anybody here have any experience with these style smaller portable parts washers?
I'm into about my 4th engine in the last year or two now (98 cr250) and every time I get to where the oil is drained I think "damn I need a parts washer". And I dont have space for your standard old-school style parts washer.
Also, a lot of them are water based.
But I like the old-school, ozone killing, toxic, wear rubber gloves style chemicals.
Is the water-based stuff any good?
Ive used a Cuda before, a scalding hot washer for parts and it worked great. Parts were so hot you needed tongs to remove them, but that meant they also dried very quickly.
Maybe I'm just unclear on what water-based means.
To me it sounds like something I wouldn't want to put steel parts in.
I also question what the thing would smell like after an extended length of time.
Maybe I could use a non water-based solvent in it?
It sounds like you got your moneys worth then. And the one above is steel.I bought one of those parts washers about 8 yrs ago.
There is a tractor supply close to me.Bought the chemical solvent at tractor supply.
It probably does, but I dont have room for that either. But I got rid of the Magna yesterday and now I have some more room on my shelf, so I think it's a done deal and I'm gonna pull the trigger. Thanks for the input y'all.An old dish washer works great.
You're not a shop, so of course the tank will work. I have a HF stand parts washer with the purple, but prefer my 5 gallon can of waste fuel to clean my parts and the environment around me.I ordered the one above. Like Steve says, for $50.00 you cant hardly go wrong. And I can put the petroleum based solvents in it, just that the cost goes up another $150.00. So I am probably going to go with the purple stuff for $5.00/gallon.
