I tried it, it works really well and you can reconstitute older paint with it because of the thorugh mixing job it does. Thanks for the tip James.

Rotary tool paint mixer....

I have finally found a way to mix paint with a dremel.
Now I know that I am not the only one who's thought of this but I have found a way it will work.
However you must do this with a dremel mini mite on low speed or a rotary tool with a compramel speed.

#1) Take a straight piece of 3" sprue(the plastic frame the part come on).

#2) Put heat to one end of the piece until it is soft.

#3)flaten out the soft plastic with a pair of pliers (or what ever is handy).

#4)Place the piece in the chuck of the tool.(you may have to adjust the collets or sand down the shaft on the piece).

#5) Last (and most important ) item.
place the mixing bit in to the paint jar or cup BEFORE you start the tool up.
If you don't do this you will be a mess.

P.S.) one more thing.
Use the lowest speed possable on your rotary tool.
(the slower the better)

I hope this works out as well for you as it did for me.

Thanks and good luck.Wink [;)]Wink [;)]Wink [;)]
