Unusual can opener and could be tough to find. They work great and I have a couple of them. You can't squeeze the juice out of canned tuna though... The main problem is that the kids won't leave any can of whipped cream alone. Better to make it out of a food product that most kids wouldn't mess with. Olives? Spam? Anchovys?

Actually, that type of can opener is and has been pretty common for years; you just notice the other type because it's different, noisier and harder to use. The type used here is, in fact, more easily found and more common than the old chisel type openers.

Instead of wax. you should get some weak magnets and put them on the inside of the can and then win the lid is put on it is weakly (enough to not fall off) held in place but not so hard ull never get it off

I noticed you have A cutco knife in the background.... I know that's random, but I wanted to mention it anyway.

do u think a soda can would work better

mrtools (author)jaytotharrr2007-07-21

no, the opener cant fit on the rim of the can. if you can find one that fits thats great

bmr91 (author)jaytotharrr2007-07-20

That's what I was thinking, none ever shakes a soda can! ;D

I'm partial to used cans of compressed air, I found it to be much cleaner & they blend in nicely to a clutter computer desk. Thanks for the tip rdeol85, now I'm going to have to try that on my next one.

mrtools (author)2006-06-09

thats cool

SkeetersMom (author)2006-06-08

Bad ass idea. I have a nosey room mate. Ha this roomy

rdeol85 (author)2006-06-02

I made one of these that has a secure magnetic lid. I just made as described then I pushed the canister onto a 1/4" thick piece of styrofoam then i cut it down to a ring with 1/4" width. After securing this just inside the bottom of the can with hot glue I used two magnets on opposite side of the ring to help secure the bottom lid from moving or falling off.

At first I was sure you were going to open a full can with the opener... :D But anyway... what is a "safe" ?

Junkyard John (author)andreq2006-05-30

A safe is a box that is hid that people put thier valuables in. The safe usually has some kind of hinderance device such as a padlock or fingerprint scanner. What country are you from?

mrtools (author)andreq2006-05-29

a safe is something safe lol :)

mrtools (author)2006-05-30

i will make a note of that

foamyguy (author)2006-05-30

Probably a given, but it should be mentioned that it is wise to use up the can that you use first before puncturing it in any way. A full pressurized can could react poorly to having the end removed. I like the project though, very jurrasic parkesque

Nesagwa (author)foamyguy2006-05-30

Itd probably react the same way a shaving cream bottle reacts when you take out the plastic thing on the bottom. Lots of fun.

mrtools (author)2006-05-30

first the can opener is made to leave no sharp edges and the idea is great o right when I read it I tried it I drank 3 different brands of water and none of them fit also nothing over the size of the opening on the bottle will fit but good idea

krusty (author)2006-05-29
Love the idea! You might want to file off the sharp edge of the can. As an added step(s):
  • Find a plastic bottle (water bottle etc) that is about the same size.
  • Cut the end off (and cut a slit down the side if it's a bit big to fit in the can, so it will compress a little.
  • Glue/screw can base to 'cap' end of bottle.
The bottle then would act as a 'holder' for all your goodies and keep the base of the can on. The two 'halves' would slip apart without the need for wax etc.
modio (author)2006-05-29

I was thinking more of a water bottle type thing where it would just screw on and off.

mrtools (author)modio2006-05-29

ya i think that would be to Complicated but still a good idea

gigman (author)2006-05-29

how about a neodydum magnet glued to the bottem rim of the can so that when the "lid" went on it would stick.

mrtools (author)gigman2006-05-29

thats good too that way you can take it off and put it back on

andy (author)2006-05-29

how about a layer or two of sticky tape around the edge? obviously you'd have to trim it so it would not create an overlap, but it would fit tighter, or you could put it on the inside of the can, though it'd be a lil more tricky...just a thought.

mrtools (author)andy2006-05-29

good idea

mrtools (author)2006-05-29

this is the easiest way you can do it if your a metal worker or something

modio (author)2006-05-29

There's got to be a better way to connect the bottom. Prehaps some sort of screw-ish thingie....
