Washing soda to a degree is caustic , so my guess would be no . White metal and caustic is a no.

Hi All,

Got the Goulds Pyramid finished and took it out for its first outing today.  Took it to our Cubs 'Easter Monday Crank-up, ran very smooth.

Regards

Ian

Hi Sunshineman,

had no problems putting the white metal bearings into the electrolysis bath, I changed from Washing Soda to Soda Ash on the recommendations of a very knowledgeable friend.
