I have thrown away my paint mixing sticks, and after reading Bobs decorating ideas gave up on the Dremel, so tried the cordless drill with variable speed control trigger works terrific........

Good tip, Sinjon.

At the risk going OT, I have to say that there are many stirrers on Mayhem that will be pleased to learn how to improve their performance!

Naaaaaaaaaaaaaa  this is what you need , about 3 quid from tesco ,complete with the batteries , all you need to do is pull the brush of and fit a piece of bent wire. just the right speed and will stir even the thickest paint .

Colin, are we talking of the winged variety here or some of the many very friendly gents I have met during my career on the waves?

Either way it brings tears to my eyes thinking about it!!
