Rattle Can Paint Shaker

Postby goldwinger » Sun Dec 17, 2017 1:47 pm

Has anyone seen or know of a DIY shaker that can shake several (up to 6) rattle cans at the same time ?
I have tried several DIY attempts at making something but not muck luck, open to any thoughts you might have

Thanks

You could start with Harbor Freight's 1 gallon paint shaker:

You can shake up to three rattle cans as is. I would look into adding a jig to hold six cans, if needed.

I have never tried putting a rattle can in a paint shaker. It is my understanding the can can't stand the vigorous shaking action and they rupture. NOT OSHA RECOMMENDED. Maybe if the motion were slowed considerably it would be safe. Myself, I wouldn't even attempt it.

I think since the Harbor Freight one runs on air you can easily slow it down to a reasonable shaking motion.

I bought the HF shaker years ago just for rattle cans and I've never had a problem. Common sense wins over OSHA in this case.
