Just purchased a Lyman Turbo Sonic 2500 Ultrasonic Cleaner 115V. If you own one how do you like it. Good things and bad.

I have one. It works pretty good for some things. Not so well for others. What's your intended purpose for it? I've used it for cleaning brass and it does pretty ok if you don't put too many in it. I used it to clean a revolver after shooting black powder and it worked wonders.

Going to use it to clean internal gun parts and the ocasionally my minijet spray guns.
I don't know about spray guns at all but I imagine it'll work perfectly. It works very well on gun parts; just remember it will take off everything including the stuff in places you can't really reach so be sure to oil everything thoroughly when you're done or it will corrode in short order.

To clean the revolver I mentioned earlier, I just used water and a generous squirt of Dawn.

I have the one that is just a little smaller than this one, I bought it on sale at Cabelas for $30 a couple of years back. It's pretty good for cleaning small gun parts, I've cleaned my AR bolt assembly a few times in it and I can't complain about it at all. I've broken down a 1911 and cleaned the major parts in it as well, comes out very clean with absolutely no lubrication or oil left on it, so don't forget to lube a part that needs some lubrication before putting it back in your gun.

I'm going to buy some jewelry cleaner and clean my wife's jewelry as well, just haven't gotten around to doing that yet.

Going to use a little simple green with water and see how it does. Think it might be perfect for spray guns cause automotive clear does not like oil or grease.

I have one that I bought to clean the baffles in my handgun suppressors. It doesn't do a great job on the baffles. I still have to clean the inner part of each battle manually
