Yeah, but the one's I've seen are only the aluminum type. I need the concave bottom and rim of the tin type. The rim is such a size that it will mate perfectly with it.

I'll check mousse cans for a tin variety.

Re: help find tin aeresol can

I'm not sure of the size but the squirt cheese cans have a rubber plug in the bottom. Oops had one for one of his stove projects. He might be able to give you some more specifics. ;) I have one of those. It's 2-1/8 wide and has a 1/8 inch hole. The can is 8 oz and stands 7-1/2 inches with cap. Is t...

help find tin aeresol can

Need 1-1/2" diameter aeresol can like in the picture below. Can anyone identify a product for a can of this size, preferably around $1.50 in price? If the can has a 1/4 inch hole in the bottom with a plastic stopper, that will be even better. http://www.geocities.com/pipetabor/calabash/images/s...

cheap 4 inch lid for an SP 600 mug

Hey everybody, if you have an SP 600 and don't want to spend $11.00 at Tinny's online shop for a lid he thinks he's cornered the market on, rush into DOLLAR TREE now and buy a 4 inch wide Cheetos can for $1.00. The bottom is tin metal and 4 inches in diameter. I don't know for certain if this will f...

Re: fabrication advice needed

Given that I'm working on a thick bottomed cottle, and I've removed a short cup from the bottom of the cottle, if I drilled a small hole then used a 1-1/4 spade bit, if I was careful, do you think this would work? Otherwise I might use a Forstner bit since it is closer to a hole saw.

I don't know what that is, but I'll google it and find out. Sounds promisingly cheap at least! :DB:
