Pneumatic Can Crusher

Has anyone every built one of these??? I was talking with some one the other day and they mentioned they had seen once.... Basically looked like a rifle breach, drop the can in flip the lever and out came the can...flat...hmmm

Sounded like a fun project...

I think it'd be cool. Take pics if you make one.

If you have that time, make the thing yourself from scratch. Ream out the cylinder, turn a piston on a lathe, mill a con-rod, use pipe for the can, cut a hole in it. Doesn't sound that hard.

Better idea...

Take an engine block w/ starter and flywheel attached, make sure it has cylinders bigger than a can in diameter. Remove heads. Build replacement "heads" with an opening for inserting cans. Build crusher extension on top of pistons (or have the "heads" push the cans partially into the cylinder). Attach 12v - crank starter. 4, 6, 8 cans crushed - depending on block used

Now that would be killer!!!
And if you made one with a V8, you'd have incentive to pound copious amounts of beer, so you could show your buddies how it worked!!!

I have a can briquetter, it takes 350 cans and turns it into a 12 pound block about a foot square it is all hydraulic though, been thinking about making a pneumatic crusher but my designs use about 30 CFM to process 60 cans a minute

Haha, i had ones of those here. Mine was air operated.
Had a huge airbag that inflated and crushed a drum.
The sides were expanded metal and you could watch the drum start to collapse the sides, then wham, it is 4 inches tall.
Sold it last year to a plant, they needed something to crush them in the plant, and it could not use any electricity whatsoever.
The whole thing was pnuematic, including the safety switches and all.
