One of our customers purchased this heating duct made out of a sheet of vintage Bulls Eye beer cans. We were able to disassemble the duct and cut it into individual sheets that we rolled. The cool thing about this story is that in the late 1930s/early 1940s someone obtained the sheet from the canning company and re-purposed it into a heating duct. Eighty years later we transformed the sheet back into what it was originally supposed to be...
We rolled this Budweiser Bock flat sheet and added a top and bottom to restore it to a flat top. Here is the flat sheet. After rolling it and adding a top and bottom it's a flat top.
We rolled this White Cap sheet and added a top and bottom to restore it to a flat top. Here is the flat sheet. After rolling it and adding a top and bottom it's a flat top.
This is a short sheet which means the sheet was not wide enough to properly seam the can. A seam from another beer can was inserted so the sheet could be rolled to the correct diameter. Below is the finished can after the top and bottom were applied.
We turned this drinking cup into a flat top beer can. The cup had a handle attached to the seam and a rolled lip. To convert the mug back into a beer can we had to unroll the lip, remove the handle/solder and finish it off with a nicely matched donor lid.
Be careful where you store your cans. One of our customers had some beer cans stored under a TV on a shelf and the shelf collapsed. Needless to say the TV fell on the beer cans and as you can see from the pictures, the TV won. Luckily we were able to restore them to their former glory.

This Yuengling cone top was missing the bottom and had significant teeth marks and a damaged spout. We stretched the can to hide the teeth marks and installed a donor top and bottom to restore the can to its former beauty.
