Default don't tell the wife

I'm sure many of you will know a dab of oven cleaner for a couple of hours softens tar/burn marks on a router bit. Well I've discovered a pass through the dishwasher makes them much easier to clean. Of course it has to be done by stealth... I've not been forgiven for putting engine parts through it!

sporting equipment and the dishwasher works well too...
her oscillating tooth brush is great for the details...

but...

oven cleaner and carbide cutters is a no go...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Yeh but just think of how white wifey's teeth will be!
Oh wait, they don't go in the dishwasher...
I'm so confused now.

Do not use the dishwasher. When i retired in 2002 I had about 12 hydraulic power rams of assorted sizes. I figured I would never use them again so I better sell them. I started cleaning them up and got the bright idea that the dishwasher would work perfect for that. It did sold them for $1000 to a construction company.

The down side. My wife caught me with them in the dishwasher. I survived that day, barely. I think I have heard about how I messed up the dishwasher at least once every day since, more when she is using the dishwasher. She claims the oil is in the machine and the only solution is a new dishwasher. That was a new dishwasher. Well sometimes it is better to give up the fight, it is the only way to win. I told her to go out and get a dishwasher. That was a couple years ago and she has not replaced the dishwasher yet.

I think she likes giving me a bad time more than she wants a new dishwasher. So a word to the wise from a guy that found out the hard way. Never touch the dishwasher. Buy a used one and put it in your shop but never use hers.

I love my wife but there s nothing worse than mixing tools and something the wife uses also it's bad enough I have to put my work clothes in the washing machine I think she cringes at that. But never thought of oven cleaner on router bits with pitch and gum, does it work?
