Had a Fellow Rusty Bunch Member ask for my help. Even though I considered myself partly retired from this activity It's hard to refuse & rare can & challenge so I made a exception & accepted the task. Being a rusty Dumper not the best Candidate. Here's some before pics. LEON.

Incredible. From those first pictures it looks like it would end up with some large holes.

OMG! That’s incredible! I was one of the three Rusty Bunchers that dug those 7 Germantown cans in Maine back in the fall and would have bet that one there didn’t stand a chance of holding together if straightening was attempted. I am just in awe!

Retirement?? I think you'd have a little side business if ya wanted one. Amazing work given the shape you got the can in.
Thanks. Dave

It was probably an auto-correct failure. He was probably trying to type innovator. :razz:

I could not help but laugh when you referred some people in this hobby as young. Everyone here is probably young at heart. :razz:
