Reciprocating Saw Shakes CansRichard M. Huckeby, Elberon, Va.: “People use pressurized canned spray paint for everything from tractor repaints to graffiti on other people’s barns and fences. However, it can be a real pain to shake the spray can in order to mix the paint.
“Instead, I use my Ryobi 18-volt reciprocating saw to shake the cans. I get the stiffest saw blade I can find and clamp the can to the blade, then operate the saw at its slowest speed. It does a great job.
“I always store pressurized spray cans upside down. That way they can’t leak the gas, or if they do you sure know it right away.
“I always wear latex gloves when I spray paint as I can then handle objects, turn them over or around, and generally manage to keep my hands paint-free. That’s important so when I read my FARM SHOW in the evening, I don’t get paint on it.”
