Default Ultrasonic cleaning

SO…

After a long afternoon of trying to strip models without much luck, I started to look around the internet for other solutions.

As such I am pondering getting an Ultrasonic cleaner, has anyone tried to use one of these before? (and is it as good as the internet suggests?)
Thanks

I still find leaving them to soak in dettol for a couple of days does the trick. Nice and easy, just leaves the room smelling like a hospital.

Oh yes, its more a speed in brushing thing...

I have about 100 Guardsmen and a small pile of marines to strip and I hope this speeds things up a bit

I bought one so I can clean my airbrushes better and decided to give it a try at stripping models. IMO, I felt that Detol was better. Takes a little more time but I felt it was better in the long run.

Yep, I have an ultrasonic bath. It's not as good as the idea seems. I think a greater advantage of the bath is that once you've scrubbed them and removed almost all of the paint then it gets the last little bits out of the cracks (at least I hope so, I've not actually tried it yet).
