This idea came to me while watching aerosol artists painting large murals, some requiring dozens of spray cans.
These artists were spending too much time trying to shake their paint and not really getting the desired pigment
blend. I found the perfect saw for this application and built a pattern to fit it. I chose the Skil model 9206 corded unit with speed dial for its ability to go really slow for safe and easy shaking. Pretty fun to load a can and go back to work while your paint mixes itself over on the bench!! Ha Ha Ive since made these stands for lots of people and tradesmen. Lulloff’s true value in Keil Wi is one of the oldest family owned hardware stores in the country and they have one in their paint dept. Nobody leaves the store without a good mix. Ive even had people using it to paint cars!! FUN

Now that is ingenious! And I have to paint my bumper where somebody (who shall remain nameless) scratched it up. The front bumper was courtesy of someone in a parking lot. I have the paint and now I can show the wife why I must wait another weekend to do it…priceless!

What are you holding the can with?

Now that’s just crazy cool! My first thought was why anyone would build a stand for a reciprocating saw…the dude must really love that saw. Really great idea.

Hmmm, somehow over the years, I’ve ended up with 2 recip saws. THIS looks like a neat idea for the “extra” one I have!

Thanks for sharing.

I used basically the same technique years ago to sand between small kerf cuts. I attached a plate to a blade and then used PSA sandpaper on the sides of the plate. I never wanted to admit to anyone that I did it, but it worked. You holder is much fancier than mine was.

Excellent idea, especially when things get cold and you really struggle to get it mixed, even in the basement.

I like that idea. That paint can holder looks like plastic.
