Parts washer

Recommended Posts

I have been looking at various parts washers in order to progress my Esprit restoration. Can anybody recommend one, or is there anything in particular I should be looking for, or are they all simply a bowl, reservoir, pump and nozzle?

I have the Machine Mart bench mounted parts washer. It has a magnetically coupled pump with a filter and a flexible nozzle; there's a perforated steel sheet above the fluid to put the parts on. Had it for several years, works a treat... I generally use paraffin as a cleaning fluid, but any of the usual fluids will work...Jizer, Gunk etc. So much nicer than a bucket or sneaking the washing up bowl into the shed...(guilty, M'lud!)
