    More steel in the United States is used to make botle caps than to manufacture automobile bodies.
    I just read that in a magazine that just came out a couple of days ago.

    NEVER try to weld a soda can! NEVER! The result ain't pretty!

    Default 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.
