After having problems getting an even mix after mixing with various items and having sticky patched on the surface I thought of a small battery operated paint stirrer a check on ebay came up with several in UK & US they were expensive with post added, I already had a 65mm Graupner prop on a 4mm shaft I'd used for mixing Auto paint set me searching what I had in small props and found these.



I have no idea where I got them l & rhd 30mm on 1.5mm shaft on screw driver speed it produced a mini cyclone effect in a cut down 50mm plastic pill bottle and the result was a perfect cure.
I expect these shaft/pros could be found in elcheapo kids boats.

Damien if you fix a disc about twice the diametre of the prop on the shaft about an inch away from it splashing up is less of a problem when run in reverse and an even beter mix results

Just a little trick I picked up of a plasterer friend of mine who modified his plaster stirrer the same way
