Power Stirrer

This shaped mixing paddle is designed for use with a power drill that has a standard chuck. Some materials need a less powerful drill than others. For instance, you can use an average-powered drill for mixing paint, but for mixing heavier materials such as plaster, use a high-powered drill. In either case, be careful not to burn out the drill's motor.
