You can make a paint stirrer from a broken plastic cloth hanger. The stirrer can be attached to a power drill and mix paint or anything else that needs to be mixed quickly.
<p>That flimsy plastic hanger will break the second you turn it on, my wife breaks them all the time hanging just sweatshirt! What a stupid idea! Buy a metal Warner one at Walmart for a $1.13! </p>
my electric mixer broke, and for awhile ive been thinking of fitting a whisk or something similar in the drill to use in the kitchen
<p>I was looking for my mixer and found an emersion blender that I don't use it worked great. One thing it will not work on a 100% full can.. mine was close to full though. thanks for the idea.</p>
<p>Great Idea thanks I have to use it now...</p>
I have a few old power mixer attachments I keep in the garage for power mixing. I put one into a cordless drill.
I've made a tiny power mixer for stirring little acrylic craft paint bottles out of a piece of metal coat hanger. I just bent an O shape at the bottom of it. Let sit those paints get so messed up, my mixer brings them back somewhat.<br><br>Then there is my 5 gallon pail mixer I made out of a piece of half inch threaded rod. I use a single speed plug in drill with it.<br><br>I never made anything out of a plastic coat hanger yet. Those are the fancy hangers! I always have to think what is worthy in my closet to put on them.
I know! I also use the plastic hangers for my best shirts. That's why only when are broken I get to use them for mixing paint.
ha ha! So I'm not alone with the plastic hanger fetish? I haven't broken one yet but if I did I think I'd have to mend it. Really, they're probably not that expensive. I guess I should just go out and get some more and stop fixating on the things so much.<br><br>I've made about half of everything I've ever made in my life out of metal coat hangers it seems. But use plastic ones? Sacrilege!
Brilliant. I get the idea with these pics.
This is a nice idea, but I definitely think more pictures or possibly a video would've helped. Personally, I really want to see this in action!
