    Has anyone found a mixer/shaker or had any ideas for a mixer/shaker that would handle 1-4oz bottles? I don't mean the badger style internal stirring mixer.

    I have and broke one of the hobby shakers used for testor sized glass bottles. It seemed to do alright, but I'm not sure that is the most effective motion.

    I think the adapter jigsaw is probably the best easily available option. I'll make an adapter just for the 2oz CI bottles that are bothering me the most. I'll keep this thread updated if I make anything.

    Should be adapted jigsaw. That's the tool they are using to make the shaking motion.

    I would have thought a sander would be better as it just vibrates, maybe even one of those oscillating multi tools?
