    Hi,

    Does any one use one they can recommend?

    Has to fit Coat D’arms paint pots if that makes a different.

    I paint only intermittently and have a lot of oldish paints that I am now finding a pain to manually shake and get mixed to a reasonable consistency.

    cheers

    Would a small ball bearing in the paint pot work for you?

    Hi Ruarigh,

    I already try that, have done for years, it does help but not enough.

    I have one of these, which works well enough, but is not worth the price being asked here. I think I paid about 20 quid at least 5 years ago.

    There are many devices that with the addition of rubber bands or a velcro strap make great paint shakers at a much more reasonable price, they aren’t customarily marketed as paint shakers though. 

    If you were keen to make a paint shaker, it’s a simple matter of a geared irregular weight, a small electric motor, a 9v battery, straps and a base.

    A few months back I purchased essentially the same thing Geof linked to, but this one was marketed as a nail polish shaker.  A bit cheaper that way I guess.  Works really well when combined with SS balls.  Did have to super-glue the little screw that holds the cradle as it kept shaking itself loose.  Here’s the link.  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078WPD3TC/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Huh, maybe it’s time to tag along next time the wife goes to the beauty store.

    hmm, errr, if you say so….

    Thanks for the various suggestions, a nail shaker sounds like the best bet so it’s time for Amazon!

    24 quid on Amazon UK, with free delivery for Prime customers.

    Which is nice 🙂
