just before the weather got into winter i aquired an older undercounter type 
dishwasher   free to try as a parts washer.  now i have it outdoors on a stand 
with the heater element unhooked(that was the problem anyhow) and the drain 
plugged for now.  i put some parts in with a gallon of "solvent/paint thinner" 
and it kinda works ok.  i did not finish playing with it but i think it will 
help cut down brushing time on cruddy stuff. it is light enough to sit on the 
driveway by my shop door to use then put away. i put a cord on it to plug it in 
with.i have more ideas on how to recycle the solvent etc.
i have a built in range i use the same way.  it is a discard i repaired the 
switch on. i put a cord on it to plug in my welder outlet.  it sets outside the 
door to cook heads when installing guides etc.  if you cook aluminum parts 
for a while then bring them out and blow them with air the crud goes away fast 
and  easy. i got these from the local appliance store  junk pile after i told 
him what i wanted to try.  so far it has been worth the effort.  regards, tim
