    Ultra sonic cleaners

    About 1.5 years ago I bought a cheap ultrasonic cleaner. When I am stuck in the house because of illness I look for stuff I don't need to spend money on.
    Anyho. After this lenght of time using the thing to clean my chain I have been able to get well over 12,000 miles on my seven and eight speed chains. When I clean the chain in simple gree and water I spend time inspecting and cleaning the rest of the drive train. So the chain spends 24 minutes in the cleaner. When I drain the solution there is a very fine grain dirt in the bottom of the cleaner.
    The thing is worth the money considering the longer life of the chains and drive train.

    My home model works well on mildly dirty parts. On hard core caked on grease it's not that great. It does do a good job, as mentioned, on getting into small crevices on derailleurs though.
