What do you think? Taped a engraver to the plastic container, turned to number 5 and turned it on.

Does it stay on the bench or want to walk?? Too fine for that?  Water and soap?  That really do much?  Heck, if Laq thinner don't cut it, don't see where soapy stuff would do much. I even blast sometimes, but has to be bad and watch for grit in tight places then too.

I bungeed a sander to my sand blast pot to keep the media worked down. 

I was a good idea, but it didn't work!

I bought a small ultrasonic cleaner at a flea market a few years ago. Just big enough to fit your average carb in. Works pretty good.

That seems like that would work pretty good. Was the dirt inside the carb or on the outside?

Both, outside and in. I hope the carb works when I put it together tomorrow. Fourth time I've had the carb apart. I don't like small 2 stroke engines. Most shops around here won't even work on them.

  I had a couple of gorounds w/ my Echo weedeater carb. Cleaned it once, kitted it the 2nd time and installed a new carb the third time. It was a dump rescue so even w/ the new carb I'm still money ahead.
