hmm ...

How much does one of those cost? I am planning a resto project (of the petrol-powered 2-wheeler variety), so I could use a parts washer myself.

Smart :D
We've been promised for ages an ultrasonic parts washer which has yet to materialise :( .Personally.I think theyre using it as a carrot to keep us slaving and keeping morale up at the same time.

Untrasonics work a treat and they not too expensive now. Mind you one that could take an entire frame would probably make you head explode at 50yds

Yeah I meant if you don't have the 12 grand+ spare to get on of those beauties an ultrasonic will be the next best bet.

Couldn't you do 'contract cleaning' for memebers of RB ? ;)

I think Safety Clean mostly gives these out as long as you buy the cleaner and services. We've got a automatic one, sit the stuff in a basket and shut the lid, turn on for 15mins and they come out clean as a whistle.
