Fed up with hand shaking paints to get the smooth consistency needed. I tried this and it works great for me and now use it all the time...

Brilliant idea, and so cheap to do!
Thanks for sharing Alan, I think of few of us will be using this method in future ThumpUp

Nice conversion, but for those that don't want to make it, a purpose item from Robart is available which also has a 240v spec..

Both are still a lot of money for something that can be done by hand. I find a few twizzles of a Tamiya paint stirrer does the job fine.

My take on stiring paint is that its slower, less effective, even if you add a ball baering and its somthing additonal to clean

Inwould rather spend the pennys and save the time for building things rather than pinch a few quid and lose time to prep and clean up
