Thanks Mike. Good points. I'm a veterinarian and completely agree with the quality of stainless as there is definitely varying qualities when it comes to surgical and medical equipment. I'm about ready to purchase or build a small propane setup and find a German stainless surgical tray or tub and give it a run.

Personally, I would just buy a tank from Brownells, they are made for the task, and last forever. Caustic soda will not rust steel

I have used a SS salad bar tub for over 10 yrs with Unibath salts and had good results. I can't speak to how it may work with other salts. I believe Brownell does not recommend SS tanks with there salts.

Unibath?? they still in business?

As I stated above, not all Stainless steel is created equal. There's a whole bunch of "stainless steels, some resist the effects of caustic soda better than others. I know that Du-Lite sells 304 stainless for their bluing tanks.

Unibath went out of business awhile back. I just used up the last of my salts and am currently looking for a substitute.
