    Please define "the right nozzle" for us dummies.

    In doing a brief search, the last thread about air compressors/drying agents was around 8 yrs. ago and the references are defunct. The photos are blanked(thanks to Photobucket). Time for a new thread ref. air compressors and assoc. equipment for cleaning?? Come on you mechanical gurus, help the rest of us out.

    For me the right nozzle has an extended tube that has a bend in the tip. I had put the bend in mine but I bent the tip for another application. A straight tip may work great also. A thin stem can really get in there more effectively than a blunt tip. Den

    https://www.harborfreight.com/air-bl...-pc-68260.html One example.

    If your compressor will only be used for light duty a small unit capable of 100psi will be fine. If you think your uses may grow than a larger compressor is a must. I only have a medium size and it runs all my pro. air tools just fine.
    By the way, harbor freight air tools are good quality, cheap, and perfect for home use. I think Lowes stores has a good selection of compressors and accessories that won't break the bank also. Den

    Well the glass was half full, or half empty? Didn't want to wait 2 more weeks so I poured it out & looked over the parts. Everything looked the same but the 2 silver colored nails were a little gray. No rust on anything. Wondering if something in Simple Green inhibits rust because I expected so see some after a week. Anyway, 16 days equals about 2,000 ultrasonic cleanings since the gun gets wet for about 10 minutes each time. I'll try to post pics. Most forums I can't because too many pixels & I have to find an image resizer & figure out how it works & I'm too tired to fight it tonight. We'll see in a few minutes....

    "No rust" = good......right?

This might tick off some traditionalists but for anyone wanting a simpler option here it is. Used the $79.95 Harbor Freight ultrasonic cleaner, 2.5 liter & Simple Green HD Pro which is actually purple not green. I had considered just getting the Mk 4 & doing the same Volquartsen mods again but this was cheaper.
    Hey, thanks for that info. We recently had a "Harbor Freight" set up a store here in Rice Lake, WI. I'm gonna stop in and see about one of those. I do have a small one that I use to clean small parts that my fingers can't hang on to, but the one you mention sounds like a better plan.
