Hi Stuart

Not used that.

I followed Tim Marlow's advice on this front.

He suggested keeping an eye on eBay for second-hand scientific ones. The rationale being that they are extremely well built and will last forever based on how little use they will get from our hobby when compared to being used in a lab. I did that and whilst it took some time for one to come up, I paid £35 including p&p for one which is £200 brand new. In my case it comes with a speed control so you can just how fast is shaking.

Hi Andrew,

Nice idea, think I will try that, as in no great hurry to get one.
One question, what did you type into the search engine?

I think i just used 'vortex mixer' in the ebay search bar

There is one on there I can see. Just be careful it is not being sold for spares!!

Just found this.... He has more than one. If obviously look for online reviews of new ones to be certain.

You could look for Vortex mixer, Lab mixer, Whirlymix, or Rotamix. All should give you hits. Make sure you buy a working one though, a lot of the cheaper ones are listed as spares or repair…..unless of course your electromechanical skill are up to scratch…..
