Hi people i have been reading online about making a home made cleaning machine using a 12v psu crocodile clip alloy bar icecream tub and salt water. Has anyone else read or heard of such a idea and is it any good?? is it safe and is there any type of metals/finds i shouldnt clean in this way? I am not going to make this device type thing untill i have had some comments from you guys to see what other people think. And to see if anyone has done this in the past. Thanks and happy hunting  Great   Detecting  Lee.

I have made a similar unit using a 6.5 Volt DC charger
it works on coin sized objects.

Electrolysis is a touchy subject, and you can do more harm than good if you don't pay attention.

(I used a penny for demonstration purposes)

For "Iron" objects, Farm implements Ax's etc. Try using Apple Cider Vinegar, Just put your piece in a Plastic or Tupperware Container,Cover with ACV to just cover and let soak for 12-24 hrs and then Clean by taping with a Hammer very lightly, And then brushing with a wire brush. After this rinse with plain Water
And a little Baking soda. Dry and seal if you like........................HH
