Paint shaker options for 5g can? No whirleybirds10/23
We currently have a rotary style paint shaker (vortex motion) for our 5g cans. It's acting up (digital panel went out, also occasionally trips a breaker for no apparent reason, etc).
It also has a bad habit of making a slightly leaky can into a HUGE cleanup problem.
We can fix it well enough but honestly we really don't like it. It's WAY too easy for it to leak paint all over the floor if a can isn't sealed up perfectly, or if the pour-bung has any crack in it.
Are there any paint shaker types that physically hold the lid down while shaking, to minimize paint slinging everywhere?
We use 5g and 1g cans. Conversion varnish and wood stain, mostly.
What should we be looking for, in terms of lean/convenience?
