Default Ideal dimensions for parkerizing trays

I'm looking into getting some stainless steel trays made for parkerizing and wanted to get some feed back on what would be good dimensions for the them.

Don't bother him with details just answer the question.

I guess Mike's right, if we suggest that you get a tray big enough for a complete M2 and all you want to do is park a belly gun, you'll waste a lot of solution filling the tank up. On the other hand, if someone suggests a 12"x8" pan 4" deep that is capable of doing most handguns and you are trying to do Contender barrels and barrelled actions of K98s, you'll quickly find that the pan is too small. So, size matters. How big do you need it?

BTW, I'm looking into getting a couple made at 40"x6"x6".

I'm making one 54"x8"x4" & it has a small parts tray made of mesh style materal that fits inside. I'm going to look for a SS drain cock

Yeah well thanks for the first answer but you assume that I would be using these for limited quantity or type of builds. Not so I'm not going to have something made just to do a couple of AKs. I'd like to build something that will work for years to come and be able to handle just about any barreled action.

Thanks Woodey. What were your requirements when coming up with the length?

Sorry for the wise crack but the question of "expectation" had to be asked.
If it was me I would probably go back to the Brownell catalog and see what they offer.
take care
Mike

One approach would be to go small and low budget. Park some things and see if you want to keep at it.

Go 40 long x 5 wide x 6 deep.
In the rare cases that 5" is not wide enough, you can add more solution and let the part sit at an angle.

Drew has one that's 4 wide and it's not really wide enough for AK's once the triggerguard and barrel are on the receiver.
The receiver ends up sitting up at an angle, but it worked...
