  • Homemade Paint Shaker

    I was looking for a paint shaker and got this in yahoo search. I might give this a try since I have a couple of different sized scroll saws.

    That's interesting. Getting all MacGyver-ish; cool. Thanks for passing it along!

    Don't have a scroll saw myself, but I do have a back massager thing; makes me wonder how well that might work.

        Thats what I was thinking, I'll stick to shaking my paint pots by hand I need the exercise and I'm not that lazy yet

          I found a used laboratory mixer on ebay for 15... shakes paint .very. well, including nightmare paints like the P3 golds. I keep it down at the FLGS so anyone needing a reaaaallly good mix can use it, since it's not something you need everyday.

            I know a couple of people that have a mixer/shaker like that; claims that it does a fantastic job, especially on older paints.

            And really, this degree of mixing/shaking is probably only needed on paints that have been sitting quite some time.

              Cool project but Donna has one of these http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...?ProdID=ROB411 . Works really well. She has issues with strength in her hands so it's a must. And ask Leopardpixie. It's fun!
