Paint cup with impeller in it for metal flakes.

Any of you guys ever seen this? And better yet, do you know the brand name and if by any chance it is still available?

I had a co-worker with one about thirty years ago. It had an air driven magnetic do hickie that spun an impeller to keep the metal flake all mixed up.

I have one somewhere ,I think mine was made by sharpe.It bled air off the gun to spin an impeller in a sep chamber in the bottom of the cup. It turned a mixer linked through the bottom of the cup with a magnet.

Check sharp or binks website?

I didn't even look at Sharpe or anyone. Dave, if I can't find it, you want to sell the one you have?

Boy Brian, I just got back from the grocery store and was browsing through the mags on the stand. In rod and custom I believe it was, there was an article that I just glanced at, a small gun for shooting metalflake, around 200 bucks, pricey little thing. I don't know if you were looking at, but remember the site listed was http://www.oldschoolflake.com/ , I haven't got a chance to check the site out myself.
EDIT. looked at site, no impeller on it, sorry.

Wow, that brings back some memories...a long time ago, I had a set of Peterson Publishing Companies "Basic" series of books. One of them was Basic Bodywork and Painting .In it was a picture of a gun like you described. I believe it was made by Marson and was used for painting flake jobs...I think Marson is still around. Don't know why I remember this, but it was unique at the time. For what its worth...

Steve

Thanks guys, that should get me going.

Steve, I had the same books when I was a youngster. I spent hours looking and reading in them. I picked up one a few years ago at a swap meet. When I opened it up it was like a time tunnel for me, the pictures of Gene Winfield making the body panels for the "Reactor" show car were like looking at an old friend.

I just dug out my Petersons book on custom painting. There are two different ones in there. One is made by Stewart Warner?

Boy, you guys are old, I wasn't born until 1970 and thankfully when I started showing an interest in cars, metal flakes popularity was pretty much kapoot.
You pot smoking hippys sure liked some funky stuff, like lace paint jobs and circus wagon vans, Boats never did seem to have the use of metal flake dissappear though.
