The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

Though they do fall at the same rate.

I couldn't find a way to fit 3 lb shot into my paint bottles, so I just used stainless steel BBs like everyone else.

Yeah, well my agitator is bigger than your agitator, so there!

Yellow Admiral: Stainless steel BB's can actually rust and ruin paints..I learned this the hard way. Best is to go with either the glass mixer beads or the hematite beads.

Then I've potentially ruined a paint collection of 150ish dropper bottle paints. No way to get them out now…

Do you have a source for these smaller than 1/4" (6mm)?

Are these those outside agitators the politicians get so upset about?
