Introduction: Red Neck Mixer

Picture of Red Neck Mixer

My wife burned out her last blender making margaritas all the time. So I thought I'd do a homemade blender assembled from some of the stuff I've got in the shop. This is actually a mixer since I didn't have a real big jar but you could definitely use it for blending smoothies and fancy drinks.

Step 1: Assemble the Equipment for a Red Neck Mixer

You're gonna need some zip ties and a longish alan wrench. You can use whatever drill you've got that's handy. The higher power the better.

Step 2:

Attach the zip ties to the alan wrench as per seen in the illustrations. Make sure they're nice and tight.

Step 3: Test It Out

Press the button on your drill. The zip ties should spin around real fast. Be careful they don't hit your hands or face because they'll hurt.

Step 4: Enjoy!

You can use this for mixing drinks or even cookie dough. Have fun and be safe!

Put it on a pole and make a weed eater

i didn't test it out but I imagine if you wanted to make a better weed eater/ slicer/ chopper, just heat up the zip tie close to the square part and twist it 90° so that when the drill spins, the ties slice through the object instead of slapping it.

Brilliant idea. I need to try that. I'm thinking of putting little chairs on the end of the zip ties and making a carnival ride.

I have to ask my wife if she's gonna use my drill press before I start a project. ;-)

That's Hilarious! Great project, the greatest ideas are the simplest.

A new spin on an old idea!

its not redneck till you add ducktape.

sabechamp (author)knexinventer2015-01-27

I thought the redneck mixer was a galvanized garbage can (new) and an outboard motor mounted to the deck.

Yeah, I use ducktape to hold down the trigger so I can put my mixer on whike I do other stuff.

so unique

i have been looking around for a small paint mixer for my quart size cans of wood stain and top coat, but have not found any small enough. So i was trying to come up with an easy build, but i could not find anything that worked.

This turned our to be perfect. Thanks for the idea

Redneck would also mean there's a way to beat your kids with it. To 1953 guy, ummm, the real world didn't start until the 80's.
