Mixing blades for small scale use

Hi, After reading some old treads on mixing equipment.. I’m going to give the bench top drill project a go. I was hoping someone could post a picture of the best type of stirrer to use for emulsions during the cool down phase? My vessel diameter will be between 15-30cm to start.
The brand isn’t important, I just want to see design. @Bobzchemist @Zink @Perry you all had valuable input if you’d help?

    I like coil impellers for a number of reasons, not least of which is that it's difficult to break a glass beaker with one, no matter how fast it's going.

  • Paint stirrer with holes drilled on each blade.

  • Thanks so much @Bobzchemist and @chemnc! Those are both so different so I’ll see what I can get my hands on.

    Every time I get paint mixed to a shade, I fantasise about using one of those shaking machines to make emulsions.
