This might be the strangest project I have ever built but I think I like it. I posted this over on my blog tonight and I thought a few of you Lumberjocks might get a kick out of it also. The idea is not original to me but I did come up with my own design. If you care to know what it is watch the video and find out.

Hi Steve.

You missed a good chance for an audio background for this.

You should have had Elvis singing “I’m all shook up” playing!

Great idea, I am fortunate to live near a buddy with a body shop and paint shaker, he graciously allows me to use it. For spray cans I may adopt your design, thankyou.

That is really such a good idea!! Why couldn’t I have thought of it, I have spent the afternoon spraying animal puzzles that I had to make for my Grandaughters school fair.
8 different colours each one shaken for two minutes!!!!!

That’s a great idea. Here I’ve been taping to a worn out reciprocating saw blade on my saw and pulling the trigger. Works ok but I can’t walk away from it while it shakes.

I’m sure there is a word for creating increasingly complex solutions to problems created by technological solutions…The other option is to stop using aerosol finishes and you’ve simplified everything.

Does anyone really shake for 2 minutes? Is it really necessary?
