    No Spill oil Cans

    Thanks to mrpete222 for the inspiration. I made 2 today and they work great. I found it easier to cut the lid off with a side cutting can opener and then used a 7/8" Greenfield sheetmetal punch, and 3/4" copper pipe, makes the fit real nice for soldering. Be sure to anneal the copper pipe before flareing, and the flare in a must.No Spill oil Cans-oilcan1_1.jpgNo Spill oil Cans-oilcan2_1.jpg
