    Before cleaning and after pix of some of my lake found tarnished silver

    Here are photos of three of my finds. I used electrolysis in tap water, baking soda, and lemon juice. I zapped them one minute at a time, then wiped off the heavy with paper towel, repeated it once or twice then rubbed with baking soda paste until finished product. I love the out come.

    The dime I had already cleaned the day I found it to the point that I couldn't get anymore of the tarnish off. So the before pic of that is at that starting point. The chain and the Saint Christopher medallion I used this process from jump street.
    Hope this helps anyone wanting to clean there silver fast and easy.

    Wow...the silver looks really nice after cleaning.

    Where can I get complete instructions on your electrolysis method? I want to give that a go.

    GL&HH!

    Whoever is selling this on ebay is in my opinion opening themselves up to big legal problems when someone shocks or kills them self with this. Don't take me the wrong way, it would be human error, not the machine, but the person using it. You put your hand in that water while its plugged in, ouch!

    That's what the capacitor is for.. all the juice that comes through the socket isn't going to be coming out of the wires.

    10 amp, 12 volt be careful around yourself, kids, and pets
    positive to anode
    negative to coin, button or relic
    3/8's stainless steel bolt for anode, keeps water cleaner longer

    One tablespoon baking soda, two caps full lemon juice to that container half full of tap water stirred until mixed


    Do not attempt this at home lol

    What you have there is a 10 volt 2 amp charger that also has a 55 amp engine start setting.
    You were cleaning your items with two amps which makes a lot more sense.
    You would have cooked them with 10
