Re: Ultrasonic Cleaners

Nice unit and 2L should work well. Mine is much smaller.
I like that it is programmable with the time and temp.
Like Creighton said, post some reviews, with pics of course.

You should be able to glue them and clamp them for 24 hours without causing any issues to the shell. I do this quite often. I typically use Dewalt trigger clamps as they have soft(er) rubber...
