    I see your operating table and raise you....

    Crest Ultrasonics currently known as "The Lab". ;)

    Been cleaning with one since Christmas of 2005 and I haven't looked back. :cool:

    Cleaned, probably, 100 plus guns and knives and never had a problem. Got a friend of the SWMBO who is a King County Sheriff, and I have cleaned his ENTIRE Issue Glock (frame, slide, parts and all) on multiple occasions without incident.

    If I could put one in every FTF Supporting Member home, I would totally do it! :eek:

    Nice gadget but takes something away from the total experience....IMO, then again, I only have 6 guns, if my collection were two or three times that, I might have second thoughts.

    Not really sure- whatever Raul has the gun boys use when the bearers turn the guns over to them.

    Smells a bit like Hoppes and some Eds Red, with a hint of CLP.

    I used to....Until they changed the formula. Hoppes doesn't smell like Hoppes anymore. I thought mine went bad. I bought a fresh bottle and guess what? No "Hoppes smell". I think they took the Benzene out of it. More "green" nonsense.

    Be careful with that. We use thoes to clean parts where I work and they will etch alunimum and brass if left in there for a few mins.

    Keep your hands out of the cleaner fluid when the ultrasonic is on. Overtime with repetitive use it will fracture your finger bones.

    Is it just me or does anyone else think Hopes smells like Banana Liquor?

    I've noticed that too. Dad has a bunch of old bottles, smells different than the new stuff.

    I breakdown my Glock, put the parts in a lingerie wash bag, and toss it in the wash with the rest of my laundry. Tide works well. Make sure you use a machine with a vertical agitator. I used one of the horizontal tumblers once and the bag broke. The parts went all over and it made a quite a racket. If I’m going to the carwash, I’ll just tie the bag to the roof rack.
