Berryman 0996

Does anyone know if this particular item from Berrymans is the one that comes with the stainless parts basket? Tried to ask someone from Summit (I have a gift card from them) and he didn't know.

I know the chem dip used to be the stuff to use. Been more than a few years since I used it, so don't know if anything better is out there.

Global warming? So what if my kids never see a polar bear. I never saw a dinosaur and I'm ok.

The CA formula has shrunk the package. You only get 96 oz (3 quarts)

Never paid attention to that...it's just a gallon sized can. Been working fine for my small parts...but it is a plastic basket, not metal. I originally looked at the 5 gallon bucket, but for the price and the extra cost of buying the basket, I decided if I really need a bigger parts washer, I'll buy a full sized unit and then just load it with the 5 gallon bucket. I just really don't have room in the shop for it...so the small can is working fine for me.

The last one I bought had the metal basket, but that's been years ago. Still got the basket; comes in all kinds of handy for cleaning small parts. I've used it for years, and used to sell it OTC as a parts counterman.

A word of caution about Chem-Dip... It's good stuff, and works well, BUT: don't soak our carbs more than 10-15 minutes in the stuff. It may not eat that plastic basket, but it WILL eat carb throttle shaft seals/bushings, and any rubber parts left in the carbs. Make sure you flush everything really well when you pull the carbs out of the soak; B-12 spray works for that, and blow it out with air when done. Use rubber gloves when handling anything coming out of the dip, and I'd suggest safety goggles, too; believe me, you don't want that stuff in your eyes. Ain't real good for your skin, either...

Thanks for the input. I googled it myself and saw the picture of the basket, but never saw it actually mentioned as being included. Assumed it was, but didn't want to risk ordering it and not having one.
