Parts Washer Uses Air To Clean
Instead of using an electric motor to pump solvent, this new portable parts washer uses your existing air compressor.
  “It saves on the cost of replacing electric motors, which can easily plug up with grease that gets inside the bearings and impeller,” says inventor Mark Cain, noting that the new washer easily rolls around the shop.
  The parts washer is equipped with a 34 by 20-in. wash tank with a hinged metal lid that’s kept open by a spring. The wash tank mounts above a 5-gal. pressure tank mounted on 4 caster wheels. A 10-gal. solvent tank mounts above the wash tank, which contains a metal screen used to separate dirt and grease from the part.
  A regulator valve mounted underneath the wash tank hooks up to your air compressor and is used to control the solvent flow. After pouring solvent in the wash tank, simply hook up the compressor to the regulator valve, and then open a valve to put the solvent under pressure.
  The solvent is forced through a hollow wash wand equipped with long bristles. “It results in better flow, and the long bristles let you get down inside the parts and do a better job of cleaning them,” says Cain. “After the part has been washed you can use the unit’s air gun to dry it off.”
  Sells for $499 plus S&H.
