After my wife’s kitchen mixer ran its course and was too expensive to repair, I saved one of the beaters. Now I use it chucked in my drill to mix all of my gel stains, plus water- and oil-based paints. It really saves me lots of time and effort over mixing them by hand with a stir stick — just make sure you don’t remove the mixer while the motor is still running!
