Using a tabletop dishwasher as a parts washer

Post by cheb »

I found this at the local tip. It may work, it may not. First thing is to let it dry out. The power lead has been cut off, that might be a good sign as it might have been working when removed. If it was broken then where I think it's come from wouldn't bother.

Next is to find a manual for it.

Isn't next to 'get a very long extension lead and hose to the end of the garden, plug in switch on, watch'?

I'll let it dry first. It's a glasswasher, not a dishwasher. May or may not make a difference. If the water's hot enough it'll be useful for rinsing and drying parts when they come out of the acid bath.

And yes, that is part of the plan. What's worst it'll do? Blow a fuse or trip the breaker.
