Mix and pour paint and finishes without spilling a drop
IHOP would be proud—and maybe even a little jealous. Rockler's Mixing Mate attaches to a quart- or gallon-sized can of finish or paint, letting you stir up the contents and then pour it—like a restaurant syrup dispenser—into a spray cup or smaller cup for brushing. Tool-free cam clamps hold the Mixing Mate to the can, and a rubber gasket prevents drips. When you're done, remove it from the can and the rim remains clean, ready for you to reseal the lid. However, you'll still have to clean up the paddle and spout. Rockler has quart sizes available now, but the gallon Mixing Mate won't arrive until February.
Mixing Mate, 44360 (quart), $15; 44170 (gallon) $20
