It works very well however the one I received might be defective. The small disc at the end of the shaft comes loose. It sort of is just wedged/compressed on to the shaft. I have not seen any other reviews that have mentioned the issue I am having so perhaps I received a lemon, but the item costs 6 bucks? So I'm not inclined to return it at my cost. Maybe I'll contact the seller and see what they say.
But, despite that, it does mix enamels, which is what I use for airbrushing, really well..much better then anything you can achieve by hand. And when paint for airbrushing is not mixed really well and thinned as needed, it's almost a guarantee of lousy results. So I'm disappointed that the one I received is defective but I don't want to slam it completely as when it is in tact it does a good job.
So 3 stars is maximum I can give it. I'll let you'll know the results of my contact with supplier.happy painting!
**just wanted to update this review..The update really concerns the seller TCP Global, the seller i purchased this from...After contacting TCP complaining about the mixer being defective, I told them that I didn't want to spend the 5 bucks to ship it back for replacement...within 2 hours of my email going out..on Sunday morning no less...I received a response from their customer service team: "a new Badger paint mixer is on the way"...no problem. For me this is the type of customer care rarely experienced these days. When I'm looking for airbrush or related stuff Ill go to TCP first as my source. .. TCP has consistently had the best prices, the stuff I want and their customer service is top of the line.
5 ***** for TCP....4 **** for the mixer
P.S. - To clean I keep some Windex (or whatever the correct solvent is for the application) in a styrofoam cup. After letting the excess paint run off into the paint jar I insert the mixer into the windex, give it a couple of quick spins, wipe with a paper towel, and voila...perfectly clean and ready to mix again!
One reviewer stated that the mixer shaft, could not be removed, after it was slid onto the end of the handle assembly -- wrong, it is a simple pressure fit, and it slides off easily, for washing/cleaning. I have not had any issues with it.
It also works for mixing up urethane-stain mixes, which have a serious issue with the pigment settling within the cans -- shake as hard, and as long as you like, you won't be able to manually shake them enough to fully mix the pigment within the solvent/urethane inside the can. Urethane-stain mixes require stirring, either manually, with a stick, or by using this wonderful device, to fully mix the pigment, for a consistent color. The mixer tip is all metal, easy to detach from the handle, and it can be cleaned with soap and water, or solvent cleaners, as needed.
Great product, fantastic price, incredibly useful. Cheers!

Right off the bat, great idea. If you any types of smaller paint bottles (model paints, airbrush paints, effect makeups) you've probably dealt with needing to evenly mix the paints... Read morePublished 16 days ago by MiRSD
