A while back I had to do some DIY that I don't really like to do, that being plastering. I hate plastering and my up most respect goes to professional plasterers as, for me, is pure annoyance.
But, as I said, I had to do some plastering, basically, almost every wall in the house I was working on. This meant I had to get hold of a plaster mixer so that I could mix smooth a bath tub of plaster in one go.
My dilemma was whether to hire a mixer or buy one, which, after checking out the hire prices, and realising that I did not have a clue how long I would need the tool for, I thought I'd invest in one just in case I decided to do more plastering in the future And this is the one that I bought.
This looks like all other mixers of its kind. Having two handles, one either side of the motor, so that you can get a good grip of the mixer and manoeuvre it around the bathtub in order to get the plaster mixed properly. On one handle there is the on/off button which, when squeezed, kicks the motor into life.
Then, sticking out of the underside of the motor housing,
there's a chuck type clamp which is designed to hold the mixer heads, which are basically long poles with blades on the end. Think 'kitchen' mixer and you get the idea.
It comes with two paddles, of mixer heads, which are designed to be used for mixing different things. The 'two head' paddle for light plaster, paint and other lighter mixes. Then there's the strange looking head that is designed for heavier mixtures, such as cement, grouting, resin and other heavier stuff.
It offers 600 watts of power, which is plenty for mixing well.
The metal poles goes into a clamp so that the poles can be detached for cleaning. With two mixer poles coming with this unit.
All you do to use it is push the end of the paddle into the mix, press the trigger and move the machine slowly around the mixture as it mixes
This mixer sells for about £60, which is good money really for what it is.
So, if you are planning to do any form of mixing, be that paint, plaster, resin or what ever, this is something well worth looking into
