These are the winding gears from a Hamburg/American grandfather clock. In the past, I have always put these into my ultrasonic for cleaning as is, but am now questioning rather I should. What do you do? I appreciate your thoughts. Thanks

The best approach would be to disassemble them. That's the only way you can be sure to 1) get them completely clean, and 2) get them completely dry. And you really want both 1 and 2 to happen. :)
