    Automatic Spray Can Paint Shaker

    This is a homemade spray paint can shaker that I made with extra materials that I had around the shop. It has saved me so much time and money over the last couple years of use. I talk about how I made this tool, why it was needed, and how it is used. I also give some paint tips and talk about other aerosol paint can shaker designs.

    That really looks handy I might have to build one for myself
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use KBS products

    Like the idea of warming the cans with hot water. Seems like it would be much more consistent and controllable.

    It really is a good method, odd one. It only takes a few minutes for the water to transfer the heat into the cans. Having the wire separators near the top allows the cans to float but still be contained whether they are full or partials.
