Use the WAL-BOARD TOOLS 1/4 in. x 11 in. Steel Power Mixer with a 1/2 in. drill (sold separately) to mix and fold compound material (sold separately) without lumping. The pair of adjustable wheels are constructed from high-stress, plated carbon steel and can be adjusted to effectively reduce lumps.

  • Use with a 1/4 in., 3/8 in. or 1/2 in. drill (sold separately) with a motor with at least 6 amps that delivers fewer than 800 RPM
  • Mixes and folds compound material (sold separately) without lumping
  • If water is present on the top of the compound, mix the compound at a slow speed until the water is blended and the compound is smooth
  • 11 in. heavy-plated steel shaft
  • High-stress plated carbon-steel wheels
  • Incorporates two 2-1/2 in adjustable wheels
  • Dispersal wheels mix drywall mud quickly
  • Lower wheel cuts upward and the upper wheel cuts downward to create counterflow that quickly disperses lumps

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Investment This Mixer is great for mixing smaller amounts of drywall mud, and I can mix in my drywall pan, February 10, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 I recommend spending a couple extra dollars and getting something better the set screw just kept slipping on the shaft not matter how tight it was. March 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big time saver I was worried this mixer bit wouldn't cut it for the 5-gallon bucket of cement I was mixing. Worked like a champ and had it mixed in minutes. I'm definitely glad I opted for this over hand-mixing - the cement would have started to set by the time I got it mixed well enough! A little pricey for a single job, but I'm still glad I picked this up, and I only did half a bucket worth. Make sure to clean and dry it after use. I cleaned it, but let it air dry. A few weeks later, I've noticed a rust spot or two, but nothing major. It does clean quite easily if you tend to it before anything dries. I threw mine in a bucket of water right afterwards and cleaned up when I was done. I was tempted to buy the much larger and more expensive paddle mixer (as suggested by the concrete instructions), but this worked just fine. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steel power mixer Used the mixed with my cordless drill to mix drywall mud. It worked great and mixed it well. No lumps at all. very good mixer for the money. August 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well, could be a little longer Mixes very well, but I can't reach the bottom of a 5 gal bucket without putting my drill tip in the mud. Works best after a little mud has been used. May 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Used to mix driveway sealer worked great! Wanted something to mix some 2yr old driveway sealer; After turning the buckets over for over 24 hrs I drilled a 3/8ths inch hole in the lid and then removed the lid and set up the mixer; recapped the bucket and used my household electric drill for about 3 minutes and then finish mixing with a large stick. Was concerned with the length of the mixer but it worked great! Even on a 4.5 to 5 gal bucket of old sealer. September 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saved my life. As a rookie DIYer I learned late into my wall repair project that this is the best tool I should have bought when i started the project not almost when it was over. Do not mix without this tool April 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works fine for both mud and paint good item for the money and operates simply and efficiently February 4, 2014
