I can wire brush the toolbars but the springs and such are hard to get clean. Also, how many cultivator feet could I put in there? Just one at a time, or if I used a 45 gallon barrel could I string 4 or 5 together? How long does it take to clean them, several days? Thanks Brandon.

How long roughly did it take these rims to clean? A week?

I'll have my tank up and running this weekend. I got TSP (with phosphate) at Lowe's. The 1st part going in will be the Fast-Hitch prong I got from Ralph. I'll provide a complete report including B4 & after pictures.

I have some B4 and after pictures I could e-mail you of some plow feet
that I used in a demonstration at Cubarama. I use arm & hammer
washing soda. I have never tried TSP so I can't address that issue. I
think one of your questions was, what do we use to clean with after the
electrolysis vat. I have a small 30 lb capacity siphon type sand blaster
that I use and use RMS aggregate. It cleans great and gets down into the
deep recesses of parts. Yes you can clean as many items/parts as you
can fit into your vat. Just remember that you must connect all parts or
all loose parts electrically. ALL parts must be at the SAME electrical
potential. Even on large solid parts I have found that if you make two or
three connections throughout the part it cleans much more uniformly.
You will find that parts cleaned this way will flash rust. I have no problem
with that as I immediately dry off and prime.
Hope this helps you some.
