Hi. Trying to find an adapter that would all this to be used with a plasters paddle (threaded). Any ideas, looked high and low but probably not searched the right terminology.
TIA

You might struggle with this plan ... you need the thread size of the paddle and your best bet is to find a chuck that has a male thread that will fit into the paddle so you could use the chuck with the smooth shaft of the honey creamer.

Something like this
Enrico beat me to it ...

Yes .. exactly, but I have a feeling that the plasterers paddle may have a coarser thread than the UNF thread on the chuck. You also need to check whether it's a right hand or left hand thread ... there's quite a few variations.

Most decent plasterer mixers will come wither their own paddle and makes vary. Many are screw thread attached.
The paddle shown would probably be better off attached to a large sds drill but you will need the additional chuck as the thornes paddle will not be sds.

Thanks. I didn't know the plasters mixers would vary the thread. Nasty

Be aware most plaster paddles are made of steal and coated they are not really food grade, you’ll often get paint chips when fitting in the chuck.

Too many - but not nearly enough
