I have tried a couple of times, once accidentally. It does help, but much faster to just run the wire brush up and down a few times.

The big drums make a nice setup for larger parts and it's cheap and easy. I've got to fill mine soon to de rust some stuff. It sure beats sanding and grinding!

I hope its plastic-I've tried the steel drums and the acidity levels will eat holes right thru 'em.

also 1 part malassis to 10 parts water will work in electrolysis metal cleaning too but be careful cleaning some types of cast and some other metals as it can change the integrity of the metals and weaken or spoil the metal your cleaning 

 

the advice might help you with other projects

I use electrolysis to clean old cast iron cookware it is the best way to remove rust especially if you are dealing with a porous metal like cast iron.
