It is... I keep a old lid from the same Primer and have one with holes and the other without... Very easy.. And no mess unless you miss the cup...

Not much room for a mistake doing it this way..

Lizer I too really like the $0.99 can spouts too. See, John thinks they're a lot of work but you have to remember he's just a cranky old guy who's become a slacker in his 'experienced age.'

John knows I'm just busting his chops, he's an extraordinarily nice guy and has helped me out a lot in the past.

Back to the topic at hand, when I'm finished with my spout I wipe the majority of the paint off with a dry paper towel, and then just wipe it down with a rag saturated with lacquer thinner and this cleans it right up. The trick getting the bulk of the paint with the dry paper towel first

I have used those and they work but they are a pain to clean up and if you don't clean them well, you will get dried paint "crumbs" in your new paint. To me they were more trouble than they were worth.

Still like the tape that I can just throw away.

evolvo I have a couple of one's similar to the ones I posted. I got mine from my local paint jobber (Wesco). His don't have a crank handle like the Amazon ones do, his have a small cross bar that hook to his mixing machine. These are what he uses to mix his batches of paint. I use a cordless drill with a T fitting to stir the paint. They are sealed from outside air when closed, they don't drip at all, they stir the paint from the very bottom of the can so the mix stays consistent. They are easy to clean if you get a clean empty can and put in some thinner, stir, shake remove and dry. Do it again if it needs it, ez,pz! There's nothing better IMHO!!!

496CHEVY3100 I also use the tape to pour to paint into strainer .the hole is to let the paint in the lip drain back into can to stop splatter when replacing lid.

cyclopsblown34 I use the method JC Clark posted. I used to punch the hole in the groove til I learned his trick. It is much cleaner as the paint pours off the crisp edge of the tape and not down the edge of the can.

496CHEVY3100 did you use the plastic I use two holes in all of mine with no leaks.might br a difference in can ,??

I used to do that, but every time I shook the can, the
groove filled up with paint.

Nothing to clean, except the groove before attaching it.


Drill or punch a 1/8 hole in the lip grove of can ,the paint will drain back in to can does not effect seal , no splatter when replacing lid ,I also put a sheet of plastic film under lid before sealing ,makes it much easier to remove lid for next usem

I learned this trick right here on the forum. Can't believe I had never thought of it but it works really well. All of the gadgets I have come up with are more trouble than they are worth to clean.
