I purchased one from Harbor Freight. The only thing inside the pot was a tube to get the paint from the bottom of the pot, which I cut off with a hacksaw.

There are two on the link you sent one for $265 and the other $395 both have an 11" when lid is on. The agitator should not be a problem to remove. The working pressure on both is 60 psi with a max psi of 80.

Yes, I guess I pasted in the wrong link. (Note to self: Preview your post & check the links before posting)

Try this one: Amazon.com: California Air Tools 365B 5-Gallon Pressure Pot: Home Improvement

Removing the agitator isn't the problem, plugging the hole is the problem. But I think I've been told a good solution.

So if anyone has THIS pot, I'd also like to know if the bottom is flat or concave. I really want one with a flat bottom.

Bob, if it doesn't have a flat bottom, then just pour some resin into the pots bottom to make level

I bought the HF pot earlier this year. A CONCAVE Bottom. Easy to cut a thin plywood bottom to fit into the pot.

Yours is a different brand, but if it's concave - this should not be a problem.
