I use one on my coins and jewelry. Works great on silver and nickles, gets a lot of crud off of cents, if further cleaning is needed, use the peroxide method with it.

old hermit34 thanks for the input. I was looking at kellyco's web site, they have several different sizes I was wondering if should stay with a small cleaner or buy one of their larger models. what size cleaner do you use and is it sufficient? also what name brand? Larry

Got mine on EBay. It's a " CD-3800 (a), digital ultrasonic cleaner. Can't remember what I payed for it. Works great. Thanks.

My bro gave me one a few months back but I'm not really sure how to use it, solutions, metals it works on, time & temp settings. It's a Branson 1200. He said it's a great machine but I'm still in the dark, maybe that's why he's a scientist and I'm not. Any one can give me any info as to how to clean finds it would be appreciated.

I have had one for several years. It works great!
Bought mine at the Sharper Image store. It was a little pricey, but it is a good quality machine.
I use it mainly for gold jewelry.

Don't waste your money on jewelry cleaner.....sudsy ammonia works better (That's what we used in the jewelry store), and it is very cheap!

firedup,

I got one for Christmas. Mine is digital and has four timer settings. I've used it on silver mostly. Works great. I think oldhermit mentioned a peroxide method. I'd be interested on how well that works as I've not tried it. Never the less, it really works good on silver. I looked up the price for mine and it goes for about $50. Good luck and HH. :)

I have an industrial unit, brought home when the company I worked for went belly up. As Timber Wolf said ammonia works really good. Tried the ultrasonic cleanerpowder Harbor Freight sells with OK results. I've also used it with a product called Oil Eater to clean car parts etc. A small amount of this stuff and about 15 minutes will clean a handful of rusty nasty nuts and bolts right up. Definately one of my favorite tools!!
