    I don't have a paint shaker but I do I use one of these :
    https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/p/produkt-milk-frother-black-50301166/

    They are £1 from Ikea, there are some on amazon which are slightly more expensive. I just modified the frother bit at the end. Took the springy bit off and trimmed the end down. Works a treat and goes easily into a 2oz/4oz bottle. Haven't got any bigger bottles to test it on.

    Some unscrupulous people are selling the Ikea ones for much more money on amazon but if you have an Ikea near they are very cheap

    I could put them in my luggage on the Motorbike they would be shook up after 350 of the miles I do :)

    Husky we would never make fun of you.

    I was just thinking, if you have an electric sander you could somehow strap the bottle to the bottom (minus the sand paper) and switch it on, the vibes and random orbit of the sanding action should mix the paint like that shaker.

    Not at all! Not making fun of you. Just suggesting practical ideas with the tools you have available. Jackie has come up with some cool ideas.

    I use an old Black and Decker jigsaw. I got free, and it's plenty strong. I bought a couple of longer blades and two sizes of wingnut hose clamps. Works great. I thought if the blades started to cut into the paint bottles, I would grind the teeth off. Or use pvc pipe to put paint bottles in with one end glued and the other with a threaded stop,with paper towels or rag to help hold the bottles snug. If you buy a cheap one brand new, it won't have near the power. Pick one up at a junk store, or garage sale.

    I made a shaker out of a lab shaker I got off Ebay and 3d printed adapters for it.
    I did see someone on Ebay was actually doing this and they were painting them red but it didn't have any new attachments specifically for small bottles, just a flat pad.
