I know this is an older thread, but I kept reading the posts about the difficulty folks had getting the Birchwood Casey Brass Cleaner. Birchwood must have read this stuff too. They now have direct sales on their website. I ordered mine last night. Shipping was about as expensive as one bottle, so stock up if you know you'll use it.

There seems to be several ideas on the best chemistry for the cleaning solutions and I wonder what the consensus is these days. Is there a pointer to a step-by-step ultrasonic cleaning process?

I bought my ultra cleaner from Harbor F. and it's a dandy for the price, and it cleans everything from a 17 to my 338's very well. but" instead of using ( Casey )I use Iosso and simply green and white vinegar 50% of vinegar and 50% Iosso and 4 shots out of a spray bottle of simply green and it works great.* min. and there as cleaned.
You can get Iosso at midway or sinclair.$25.00 for a gal

One more idea on the ultrasonic cleaning approach ... I just got a Food Dehydrator from Harbor Freight for $25 and I use it to dry the cases after cleaning. The temperature never gets much about 160F so there is zero chance it will affect the case hardness/temper. So, instead of waiting hours or overnight for the cases to dry you can put them right into the dehydrator and in about 15-30 minutes the cases are nice a dry. Depending on the size cases you should be able to do at least a few hundred at a time and perhaps as many as 1000.

This is what I use in the ultra cleaner.
I fill the cleaner up with water to just under the full line, I use a plastic candy dish that is 3.575 in dia at the bottom and 4.56 at that top, it's 4.375 tall.
I found plastic pistol bullet box's and cut them to fit the plastic candy dish.I have two different size's of plastic bullet box's that way I can use the big size to hold 357,44,45, 308,30-06,30br,6br,case's in and the smaller hole box's are nice and I can put the necks of the big mags like 300win 338,'s in the smaller holes. But" I only clean about 12 AT A TIME" I have tryed 15 and 12 is the number that cleans them all really good about eight min.
Now in this plastic dish I put in 50% white vinger then add 50% Iosso and then I squert in foue squerts of simple green and mix it up good and I use tape water. set the case's in the bullet box and put it in the ultra cleaner set it to 480 and bing-o it's done. and thank you for the hint on the dehidrater

I prefer the use of glass beakers for holding cases and cleaning solution and then placing them into the ultrasonic cleaner. I use a 3 cup plunger coffee spare glass (beaker/flask) that is extremely thin walled and heat treated. It works fantastic and appears to be very low loss/resistance to ultrasonic transmission.

I can fit 2 of these glass flasks into my ultrasonic cleaner and clean 50 cases at once. Using a five minute cycle to completely clean the case using 50:50 water:vinegar. The ultrasonic cleaner I use has a ss mesh basket which keeps the glass flasks off the bottom.

The spare glass I use are Bodum Size 3 (3 cup) Part No.1503 and they hold 12oz/0.35L. Check out http://www.Bodum.com and look for Component/Spare Part list. Its a Swiss company and the quality seems excellent, I give them rough handling drop cases straight in and absolutely no breakages.

I posted an article here http://ozfclass.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1491 which shows pictures of flasks etc.
