The supports are actually pretty simple... If I were so inclined I might just get someone locally to fab some up for me.

Where are you working this week? I could swing by and you could check it out.

I'm finding the best thing about the paint shaker is I can do other things while the machine is shaking the can. I can start scuff sanding, or organize and setup. And it does so much better of a job than stirring does.

I've set it up at 35psi and let it go for 20 minutes while I'm doing other things getting ready for mixing and spraying. It's a gentle shake but it still gets things mixed up and even if there's stuff stuck to the bottom of the can by the time I'm finished it's a perfect mix. Worth the $112.

Why did you decide on pneumatic over and electric mixer?

Price. Plus it's more safe in the spray room, non sparking. Not really planning on bringing it out in the field. If I have to transport paint I'll pre-shake it and then all it'll need is a gentle stir.

That makes sense. Wasn’t thinking about sparking.

In my experence nothing drips as much as self levelers. I was really in a the market for a sausage gun, but almost everything is comming in cartridge, including r-guard. The cost difference is about 50 cents to 1 dollar per oz, so between tips.. kinda a wash. They sell quick swap kits for the m12 and m18 caulk guns to switch from 10oz to quart to sausage packs. But they sell the newborn and alblon sausage/bulk convertable guns for about the same price as the kits...
Anyways, fall is here, nighttime temps are already dipping below 60's for some reason, and so.. all the caulking is getting a bit firm. Have to reseal my own windows and bathrooms soon, so I'll give it a good workout!

I bought an Albion sausage gun for Zip liquid flash. Really nice unit.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


What I like about cartridge guns is that I can tape up the tip and swap out a cartridge. Patch some walls with latex, seal a shower with silicone, etc. Sometimes a couple pulls is all you need. With a sausage gun, you are stuck with only one item, and a lot of it!

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Picked up a Graco X5 sprayer today. I've been wanting something for a while and almost bought one of the handheld units as I dont paint that much. Hopefully this is as good as all the reviews say and suits my odd painting amd staining needs.

I have four interior doors to do next week so I'll have to see how the 515 tip that came with it works. I saw a 311 tip at HD when I bought this today that I think might be better for trim and doors.

That 515 tip is gonna put out a lot of material for spraying doors. Look into the FF tips Graco has. A 308 or 310 may be better for you.

Thanks for pointer, I figured the 15 might be too heavy. Can non thinned latex be sprayed okay with something like a 310?
