    I’m using black jack 57 and I didn’t stir quit sufficiently. All is not lost but that was hard to spread. Doing another coat. Thoughts? Getting drill paddle stir device

    They rapidly outgrow the indoor brooder.

    It helps to put the pail upside down for a day or two.

    Oh I know! It’s still sort of chilly in ND but all should be ready in a week or so.

    The guy at Ace stirred it with paint shaker machine and it was PERFECT!

    This was after the first coat went on?
    We were wondering in another thread if a shaker machine could handle BJ57.
    If it's still cold where you are might take longer to cure...
    .....and hopefully it will still cure properly.

    When I did mine, Lowes said they won't shake the 5 gallon pail of Black Jack. They said it's to thick and could damage the machine. I turned it upside down for a day and used a long piece of 5/4 board to stir it.
