I dont know why but I have a box of nitrle gloves at the paint bench and always forget to put them on...but when I'm working with bare metal I always remember and have walk all the way over to the paint bench to get a pair...and why is it every time I paint a black car my dang wife made plans for us to go out to dinner with friends...you ever try to get black paint out from around your nails it looks just like grease...I always end up using the wifes finger nail polish remover with a scrub brush and scrub my hands raw and still have to hide my hands mabee I'll wear the nitrle gloves at the resturant

home depot has this sweet ring the snaps into place on a 1gal can and it has like a spout i guess on one side so you can pour, no drips or runs on the can and the rim around the top of the can doesnt fill with paint, only cost like 1.60 or something like that

I have used those UpandComing but found they had to be meticulously cleaned in the groove that snaps over the can. No big deal with latex house paint, But time consuming and expensive with urethanes and if not perfectly clean you can get junk in your paint out of the groove.

I always think about the reducer and time it takes to get the dang thing clean again. I guess with paint being 400 dollars a gallon, I should throw it and my mixing cups away each time but that is not in my psychological make up.

I like the 1 1/2 tape trick. It matches my personality.

mine too ...cheap ....It can be a bit embaressing sometimes ,when you open your wallet and a moth flys out...my butt cheeks tend to squeek sometimes when I walk too....
Jonh,do you rinse out those disposable mixing cups until the ink disappears ??? now those are worth cleaning,I buy one every year whether I need one or not ....Old veggie cans work great with a mixing stick for me,those big cans of Bush baked beans are nice and for mixing a gallon I just cut the top off an empty reducer can with a pair of snips (I save them and qt size hardener cans too)...It makes me cringe when I go to a shop and see a painter throw a perfectly good mixing cup in the trash after using it one time....

I swear to God Mike, you have been hiding in my garage watching me work. Yes the ink does eventually go away. I sometimes cut notches in my stir stick like at 4-5-6 inches for a 4-1-1 mix. Just fill the can to the correct notch with each material and stir. I am really thankful that someone understands my emotional needs. I think frugal is the correct word for my condition but it is not the one most people use.

Speaking of cheap, Have you noticed how hard it is to get enough of those free stir sticks. Good stir sticks for block sanding are keepers nowadays. You used to get a big fist full every time you went to the paint store. Now you get 5 and not a smooth straight one in the bunch.
