@Tin_Foil I currently use a couple of pickle containers from systema and a cheap black-light I had lying around so I don’t really need this.
Regardless, I checked the specs and while it might not work for the biggest prints (Anycubic PhotonS owner here) it would work for almost all minis. It seems a bit steep price-wise. Rather wait for a cheap ultrasonic cleaner to show up at a thrift store or possibly a second round on Meh at a reduced price.
@Tin_Foil You’re supposed to use 99% IPA for SLA resin, which is highly flammable. None of the machines in this price range are rated for that kind of application. I guess you could use water, but I’m not sure how effective it would be. I got a $2 syringe (no needle) from the grocery store and it is great at blasting resin out of small crevices.
@norman8 Totally looks like a toaster. For that price though, I’ll stick with the $5 red Connoisseurs jewelry cleaner I bought 15 years ago that still works. Thanks to the internets, found out it still sells for $5.
@wickhameh I am vagazzled and was entertained by imagining how that would work. My first thought went to the steamer and I was a bit horrified, but the ultrasonic bath could be amusing. And yes, my “intimate jewelry” is part of why I’ll probably buy one.
When I worked at a store that sold jewelry, I cleaned my glasses with the steam machine at work. After a few weeks of only cleaning them that way, there was a barely noticeable accumulation of crud that was immune to steam cleaning.
I have an ultrasonic cleaner at home, so I used that with various cleaning chemistries. I can attest that there is crud that comes off in the ultrasonic cleaner, but not the steam cleaner, and vice versa.
I was afraid to use the store ultrasonic cleaner, as it was frequently used with abrasives that could easily remove the coatings on my lenses. The jeweler said that it was easy to get all of the abrasives out of the cleaner, but he was a professional lier due to his profession.
Note that the steamer at the store was clearly an industrial grade item, operated with a foot pedal. The item on sale here might not be comparable.
My wedding ring hasn’t been cleaned in over a year. Tonight, my husband had fun using the steamer. I had to use the cleaner multiple times, it was so dirty. My ring is super shiny, and I love it. I’m glad I purchased this!
