Measuring only 13 inches wide by 14 inches long and 5-1/2 inches deep, the parts cleaner is ideal for the rogue gearhead, and its portable nature makes it great for race trailers and toy haulers as well. The environmentally friendly, water-soluble Oil Eater solution flows through the cleaning brush, making clean-ups a snap, and a removable lid keeps the tank clean and neat when not in use. The tank's high-impact plastic body is tough and lightweight, and the heavy-duty pump resists corrosion. The Table Top Parts Cleaner comes ready to use with one gallon of Oil Eater cleaner/degreaser.

Dip, Soak, Rinse, Clean
In the past, cleaning and restoring oxidized aluminum required use of a media blaster, grinder, or other destructive tool that could damage a valuable or irreplaceable alloy part. Alumina is an aluminum oxide remover and cleaning agent that contains no fluorides, acids, caustics, or solvents. It's biodegradable and safe to use with plastic, rubber, and PVC. Simply immerse the part in the Alumina solution and let it sit for 20 minutes. Then remove the part, rinse thoroughly with warm water, and all the oxidation, tarnish, and other deposits will be gone. Alumina is available in 1- and 5-gallon bottles, as well as 55-gallon drums.
