Hi All,

Can the ultrasonic jewellery cleaner units be used to clean up beach coins?

I've seen a few cheap 40000hz units on flea bay and wondered if they have enough power to loosen up the muck.

Ive been finding a dozen or so coins each time I go to the beach and they're starting to add up smile

Cheers,
Tim

I just started using one on my finds seems to remove dirt but not years of petina Doesn't matter if silver or copper or modern however does a great job on jewelary. 1438860031_image.jpg

As above, good for loosening and removing soil from nooks and crannys on coins/jewellery, but anything harder than that and they aren't so effective.

If you want to clean bulk lots of coins, especially beach coins with corrosion, a rock/gemstone tumbler is the way to go, though might seem too expensive for some. They can be purchased from most lapidary shops, Lortone is probably one of the more well known brands out there. smile

Thanks for the good info.

Might make a DIY tumbler at some point.

Cheers,

1438955210_image.jpgI have seen home made tumblers made from copy machines. BUT here is a Xpo of above product you be the judge. 1438953840_image.jpg B4. I have used the key way to represent a flat coin & a 1921 penny (seen better days)1438954217_image.jpg1438954313_image.jpg. 15 min wipe - turn (change water)15 min. ..My thoughts , not a coin restorer device. Maybe more affective on jewellery It worked on the ring I found recently. 1438955301_image.jpg

If only I could find more rings, my very first outing I found 2 gold rings in about 10 minutes.

Now I'm the king of 5 cent pieces and tent pegs lol
