<p>Watching this makes me sad, when I think of all the bottle caps I've thrown out over the years. I will never throw another bottle cap in the garbage again. Thank you. </p>

<p>Thank you for fixing video. That is really cool how you made coke beads with rounding tools. where can I purchase the rounding tools? I think I am going to make some of these beads. I have decades of saving different soda pop and beer caps. I cant wait to make some of the older tops like mnt dew, a&amp;w, pepsi, ect. Thank you for sharing idea on instructables. Well done my friend.</p>

<p>Just a note, so far I see @ least 3 persons trying to find icon to click on to watch video. I have been trying for 10 minutes to find something to click on to see video. I click on icons all the time to watch the videos. this instructable does not have an icon. is this a glitch or is there something I am missing? Please help to figure out what is going on. thanks! p.s nice picture at the begining though. </p>
<p>I can't see any video either which is a shame. This looks interesting</p>
