Paint Shaker

    Hi All,
    I'm sure you all have a normal d.i.y. drill so this is my paint shaker. A 25mm rubber walking stick end, a 6mm bolt nut and 2 washers, one for the internal and one for the external clamping of the rubber cup. Best of all only a couple of pounds to make, put it in you drill chuck and whizz around either on slow start or fast, work a treat and all that money you save you can buy another kit.

    That's a cracking idea Richie, might give that a try.
    Only thought is though... how do you get round now without your walking stick :whistle::D

    That's a great idea, Ritchie! One creative idea popped up in my mind but it wouldn't be proper to post pictures of it...LOL

    Ritchie.....Thanks...You nailed it for me.
    Sometimes those acrylic paints need some pretty aggressive shaking and because I have a bad shoulder I had been looking or thinking about some kind of simple shaker and didn't care for the ones I saw available for one reason or another. Anyway ,I have an old variable speed small hand scroll saw that I was thinking of using in some way and your screw and leg tip idea works perfect. I just fastened that setup to an old blade and it holds those little paint bottles perfect. It shakes the daylights out of those bottles and 10 seconds is all that needed. "It actually makes paint shaking fun again". Richie you can use that line if you decide to patent and market.:D
    Hans.....I think you've been looking at too many sex toy catalogs.....:) …….not that there's anything wrong with that.
    Nap.....Shame on you for that kind of talk;...."You a nasty boy"...….:ROFLMAO:
