Building A DIY Ultrasonic Cleaner


It is always an entertaining and satisfying to build a DIY ultrasonic cleaner.

The things that one would require for building this cleaner are:

  • a soldering iron,
  • a quality sound card,
  • an oscilloscope,
  • a pair of ultrasonic transducers,
  • a solder,
  • a stainless steel container,
  • audio cables (RCA),
  • and a linear amplifier.
