How did you roll the rim Skids? Thanks for sharing the Buff Ball idea. Where did that idea come from?

another idea for polishing the can. fill the empty can with water and freeze it. for a little while, at least, you'll be working with a solid object rather than an empty can.

I didn't.

I'm hoping the stovies will start giving educated guesses and then I'll give the method in a few days. :mrgreen:

I had been thinking rubbing compound for a while but didn't like all the elbow grease required. When I saw the Power Ball, I knew the problem was solved.

Why? Had you seen it before?

Okay, I'll take a crack at it. Is it the rim from a carboard canister (like a Stovetop stuffing or the such) fitted to the Heine?

It's the rim from a large catfood can. From a cream cheese bowl.

Whatever it is , it's going to collect little creatures under it and make you sick :P

Bingo! Cat food can.

No way little creatures can get under it though. :P

How'd I do it? You guys should be able to get close enough by tomorrow at the latest. I have faith.
