Sonic Cleaning Type-Part 2

Hello everyone. I posted a question about using a sonic cleaner for metal type and cuts a few months ago. Well, I have been experimenting with that technique with a LOT of success. The sonic cleaner was a minimal expense (from Amazon) as was the degreaser fluid (from the dollar store). I have posted a before and after shot with a brief synopsis of the technique on my website at

The results were excellent so the only drawback is the time it takes. However, I believe that once cleaned, future cleaning will be minimal.

Hope this is helpful to anyone wanting to use old, dirty type.
