    Took a chance, we shall see

    So I was looking for ultrasonic cleaners when I found this: Stainless Steel 6 L Liter Industry Heated Ultrasonic Cleaner Heater w/Timer | eBay

    We shall see. I hope it works. He claims he will make it right. It's worth $12.00 to roll the dice. With 6220 feedback, I suspect he will try to make it right.

    Good Luck! The one that matches it in the link you provided lists for $129.99, I think a 9 was left off in the listing shown in your post.

    I just received it and tested it.

    It heats and it vibrates and when you stick your hand in it, and it feels really weird. I think it works.

    I can't imagine why they sold it to me for $11.99, but they did.

    OK, so a serious question now. Now that I have it, I am under the impression that I can fill a small jar, like a baby food jar, with watch cleaning fluid and immerse it in water in the ultrasonic cleaner. Does this work, will the ultrasonic waves get through the jar?

    I followed the link after you posted and it was 11.99.

    Looks like it's up to $48.99 and out of stock...

    Can't see why it wouldn't work with the jar inside, It just vibrates everything in the tank so if the jar is sitting on the bottom it should vibrate the same. I have a plastic basket which is OK for bracelets and cases etc and it works great.

    I usualy do three or four 30 sec cycles and drain and re-fill for a bracelet and you'd be horrified how much grime comes out of it.

    Whooo just saw how big yours is, mine is only a half litre but it should still work the same.

    Thanks, I think a 1/3 liter would be more reasonable for watches.. I guess if I every work on a clock, this will be a good size. In fact, now that I mention it, I do have a small clock project set aside. It would be a good deal at $49 too; but for $12 I am blown away.

    1/2 minute seems short, can you over clean a watch part? I was thinking of running it for 1/2 hour since that's the machines maximum.

    Otto Frei sells (or used to) a bracket which held two glass beakers in the ultrasonic bath. Water went in the ultrasonic machine and cleaning solutions and parts in the beakers. It works just fine and reduces the amount of cleaning/rinsing solution you use/contaminate.
    In addition to the beakers, good cleaning baskets will make your job more efficient and reduce the risk of parts damage/loss.

    I recall the instructions for jewelry/watches recommended the multiple short bursts.

    The water actually heats up and I suspect that it would be pretty hot after a half hour.

    I think mine has only a minute or two as the max.
