    I have one. I use it occasionally. Some paints tend to settle out more than others, and if they have sat for a while, weeks or months, I may give them a good shake before working with them.

    I have this battery Robart one, they do a mains powered version too which I would recommend, the battery one doesn’t last long for anything over a 1oz bottle. It does work well but battery usage (D size) is expensive so I don’t use it often

    I actually use these far more often, they reach the bottom of the 2oz bottles well.

    ooooooooooooh I am so naive. I thought you guys are shaking by hand.... :rolleyes:

    Do you need to shake with hand after you use paint shaker? I would guess not.

    I have those Tamiya stirrers too. In fact I think I bought them from your recommendation. I really like them for the reasons you’ve said and they just about get to the bottom of a 120ml bottle. Stirring makes so much difference to how my paint sprays.

    I still shake by hand when I use the shaker - just habit I think.
    The Tamiya stirrer is great, use the flat end to scrap the bottom of the bottle (even the 2oz) wipe it on the neck of the bottle when done and there is minimal paint remaining in the stirrer. Just wipe it clean with a damp paper towel.

    I went to check online and stumble on their site. They are from states. Did you order from states?

    Oops! Wasn't done typing. The only problem with it is make sure you turn it OFF before removing from bottle of paint. lollol

    If you are only concerned with those teeny tiny sample bottles then just get anything that will shake nail polish bottles. Just don’t expect it to handle the normal Createx size bottles.
    If you have a toolbox that contains a Jigsaw the just strap the tiny bottles to the blade and turn it on lol

    yea, I was thinking if I can use those shakers for small bottles like these. I have bunch of small bottles full of colors from before.

    And I like the idea with Jigsaw. That's a true brainstorming :)

    Electric knife - remove one blade, tape the bottle to the remaining blade....

    all else fails put them in your trouser pockets and turn up some music lol
