Hard (impossible) to start

I got an ultrasonic cleaner at Harbor Freight for ~$30.  I haven't used it
on carbs, but it seems to do a good job of cleaning my girl friends jewelry.

I wonder if the typical ultrasonic cleaner rigs you can get on the 
consumer market would do the job?  Or do they have some special 
nuculear-powered-atomic-blast-resistant units?

I've wanted to get a reasonably capable ultrasonic cleaner for home use, 
perhaps off eBay.  I have more than just carburetor-cleaning in mind, too.
