I have to agree with Mr Earle. Cleaning parts in gasoline, Kerosene, etc is a foolish way to go. Keep doing it long enough, especially inside and you might burn your house down.

Ultra Sonic tanks have come a long way in the last 10 years. You want to get one with at least for sound units and a heater. It should be large enough to put a crankset in the parts basket. Yes, initially they are expensive, however you can find them on line used or at a Medical Arts Supply house in your area and they will pay for themselves. Here's another benefit for those of you who have a shop in your basement: Your significant other won't complain about the smell or mess like she does with your present configuration.

Hello Don, I have been using karosene in my lidded parts washing tank for several years, (ten or twelve), and have been pretty happy with the results. I find karosene to be a good, fairly mild, grease and grime cutter. It has a relatively low odor, doesn't seem to evaporate too quickly and it is not so flammable as some other fluids. Mostly though the karosene is an affordable option for me. I will add that proper ventilation, protective gloves, and a metal tank with it's fire suppression lid are very important to have and use.

Does anyone have thoughts on kerosene instead? I've heard it's just as effective and much safer, but it was a slightly questionable source that I heard that from.
