E -tank question cleaning small parts

Postby inairam » Thu Feb 16, 2017 4:17 pm

I wanted to put a number of small parts in a e tank (old taps and dies). I was thinking a metal mesh basket but All I can find are galvanized or stainless baskets.

I do no think galvanized is a good idea at all in the e tank at all.

I know members have written not to use stainless as the sacrificial rod but is it ok to use on cleaning side of of the circuit?

Thank you in advance

I think either galvanized or stainless is OK on the cleaning side. I use a couple dipping baskets from carb cleaner (one from a 1 gallon and one from a 5). They are plain steel. I also have a large stainless trough I attach the negative lead to and just toss things into it.
