Nine-to-fivers rejoice! In 2011, Hornady plans to pull the curtain on a new heavy-duty stainless-shell, Ultrasonic Cleaning machine—essentially a capacity increased version of their Lock-N-Load Sonic Cleaner. That isn’t really news in-itself… what is however is that this new model hopes to sit on the frugal side of the gap between the cheapy, low-capacity ebay/rummage sale specials and the large industrial, take my whole paycheck numbers. Hornady’s new Lock-N-Load® Magnum Sonic Cleaner™, sporting a modest $317.00 price tag, provides triple the size and twice the power of the Hornady’s original Lock-N-Load® Sonic Cleaner.
How you ask? Two transducers which assuredly will improve cleaning performance and probably reduce processing time, compared to single-transducer machines in the same size range. Also new on this model is a more exact temperature control (i.e. not just an on/off toggle) allowing better optimal cleaning temperature regulation.
