Ultrasonic cleaning for axles!

Post by whodathunkit » Sun Jan 21, 2018 8:57 am

After reading over a few topic's discussing cleaning processes for wheel's found here:
https://www.derbytalk.com/viewtopic.php ... ner#p54475

I was wondering if any one has used an ultrasonic cleaner for cleaning up the axles as well.
Before or after.. polishing the axle.. or as a re-prep. & what cleaning solutions mix's might one try ?
Like alkaline solutions, high caustic solutions, acidic solutions, enzymatic solutions, or de-ienized water.
Or Home brew solutions, like super tech or Windex.. windshield wiper fluid and distilled water and so on.

That would be interesting. I have a unit I bought to clean my glasses. Never thought of using it for axles!
