Hi Joe, Sure it is possible to make your own ultrasonic cleaner. Let
me ask you are you wanting to build them as a business or are you
wanting to make jewelry? If you are wanting to make jewelry then make
jewelry and buy a cleaner. Don’t waste your time on making an
Because you will need to invest some time in learning electronics and
the technology involved with ultrasonics. Once you do this you will
find that buying parts at 1 each will cost you more than buying an
already manufactured unit. Just for example: The transducer crystal
alone when ordering one at a time would cost several hundred dollars
then you have to attach the leads to the thin silver coating without
melting the coating. You will also need to let the crystal stabilize
for a couple of months before it can be used. This has to be done in a
special room that has strict temperature control and humidity control.
It seems to me you are trying to save money by wanting to make your
own cleaner. One thing to remember is all manufacturing including
jewelry is cheaper when done in large quantities. So if you don’t want
to pay what you call a high price for something you need to think
about what has gone into the manufacturing of the item. Some things
won’t have a great deal of science and engineering in them others
have an enormous amount in them and you are paying for the development
and the materials when you purchase them.
This is why everyone doesn’t make everything they use in life. You
couldn’t afford it and you won’t live long enough to learn how to make
It’s always good to be frugal but the next time you need to buy a car
are you going to make one yourself or buy one that is already made?
My suggestion is to find a good unit and compare pricing. Then buy
from the company that has the lowest price and has a good guarantee.
When shopping for ultrasonics compare prices only on the same makes
and models. Do not compare prices of different makes to each other.
All ultrasonics are not equal! So buying the cheapest unit available
will not mean you are getting the best ultrasonic. There are some
makes that would not be a good unit for your intended use and they may
or may not be the cheapest. If you would like more info and help email
me off the list. – Ken Kotoski MPG Repair www.mpgrepair.com
