Anyone tried these??


Does anybody use an ultrasonic cleaner for airbrush cleaning? Also has anyone converted an electric toothbrush into a sander??

I'd be afraid to try the ultrasonic cleaner thing. A lot of them have insides made of ABS which might melt from an airbrush cleaning liquid.

I don't think that is an issue as they all seem to come with a built in timer, mine is from Harbor Freight and shuts off after 3 minutes. I have cleaner in it but i use enamels and a testors airbrush with the small tips and I just put a small glass cup filled with thinner inside the cleaner tub and it resonates through the cleaner into the thinner filled glass and it makes my airbrush parts immaculately clean every time. I was stunned the first time I tried it and saw how clean it was.

I have a cousin that used to fill it with Lacquer Thinner and just toss the whole thing in there until the next time he needed it. As far as I know he never had any issues with the plastic or even the seals, which is what I would have been concerned with. I think he mainly had the Badger 350's....

Well I filled the cleaner with purple soap for doing brushes and such but I use an Aztek airbrush with the changeable tips so I put lacquer thinner in a smaller jar and put it inside the cleaner itself and it works just as well because it seems to transfer right through the glass. Lucky due to the fact that there are no gaskets or rubber parts to be affected.
