Paint Tube Shaker for elderly painters

SummerSummer -
edited June 2018 in Studio & Supplies

Shaking the Geneva tubes manually got to be a drag so my husband and I collaborated on this mechanical shaker. Some of you might be interested enough to make your own. It's mostly obvious, but it took drilling three mounting holes to attach the right-angle channel to the back of a saw blade. Those blades are made of hardened tool steel that ordinary drills can't touch! Even cobalt metal drills quickly dulled in the process. The only thing that finally got through was a 20 thousand rpm tungsten carbide burr. We have no patent on this so help yourself guys--haha.
