    NEVER try to weld a soda can! NEVER! The result ain't pretty!
    Save our species! Lower metal prices!

      soda can

      I had the stupid idea of making a Budweiser can flower, it was a lesson in protective clothing. The anodized/oxidized outer aluminium contained the heat of the arc - until the melting aluminium within exploded and sprayed metal out of the weld zone.
