Does anybody use a paste mixer in their shop? I am looking at one that uses "Psuedo-Planetary Motion" to mix and soften solder paste.

If someone answers "yes", has this benefitted your paste consistency and improved your print repeatability?

We have hand mixed several million grams of solder paste in the last 20 years. No problems to date.

Every paste supplier I've talked to has recommended against these things. They fear the paste will be overheated.
