    I use a wooden spoon in my drill. I wonder if I need to get something better. Any thoughts? These are £4



    Or cyclone mixer £10

    A few of the members here won a Cyklone each. They’ll probably say the Cyklone Stirrer all the way.

    Would be lost without my Cyklone as they get through pretty much everything. A smaller version would be nice too.

    The only way to clean any of these @Wayners is to remove from the stirred paint and spin in the air at highest speed. Especially with oils and adhesion primers

    I'll push through your letter box and spin clean then @barry :hysterical:

    Many years ago.....
    I remember spinning a brush with gloss dipped in white spirit, that was in a old cut off plastic bottle. Bottle caught the dirty white spirit but the brush came loose and flung the contents and bottle up the side of a wall :shocked: oh my god! I always place tins in a bucket to mix or find safe spot from that day on.

    I use the 2 sizes of these. Brilliant kit but i have a Cyklone too which i use for most trim paints as their thinner. The axus stirrers are great for viscous materials. I just drop mine in a bucket of warm water & by the time your clearing up their ususlly clean.

    I do the same but I also put mine down the bog and spin one way the reverse it, obviously no turds in their at the time :sarcastic:

    quick and easy, but the warm water works a treat, and if you forget, the paint can be picked off them, as I know some here are tighter than a ducks arse :sarcastic:
