Close enough!

Here's how to do it and what you need:

-Cat food can
-Safety opener
-Dremel tool with two bits: a Diamond cut-off wheel and a Sandpaper 'flapwheel'.
-JBWeld

1)Open the can with your safety opener and sand the inside lip of the cat food can and the outer part of the Heineken pot.

2)Poke a hole in the bottom of the can for air relief.

3)Apply a thin, even coat of JBWeld to the inside of the catfood can with your finger.

4)Shove the can onto the Heinie pot as far as it will go. Carefully wipe off the excess epoxy, turn upside down and allow to dry overnight or longer.

5)With the Dremel, cut off the extra can as close to the rim as you can.

6)Switch to the flapwheel and sand the burrs off from the inside of the can working out. This will 'pull' the metal of the Heineken pot back over the rim slightly to lock it in place.

Here's everything I got:

I'll try to get some closeups when I do the next one.

I've come up with an alternative lid that is half the weight and a quarter of the price. I'll share that when it's finished.

Skids, thanks a bunch for showing us the Power Ball. I had never seen one and it got me thinkin'(always dangerous). The two front aluminum rims on my Ranger tooks some abuse from some brake dust and have turned gold in color. I've tried several rim cleaners with no luck. I went to AutoZone today and shelled out $24 bucks for a powerball and another $8 for Mother's Aluminum wheel cleaner. They shine now!!! :D :D Thanks again!

I have one or two of the Heine cans left and might try chopping one down. Your pics confuse me a bit.(doesn't take much these days :lol: ) Do you first chop the heine pot down to just above the band? One of your pics shows the vienna sausage lid setting on top the heine can but you mention to put a hole in the bottom and slide the can over the keg. Do you do that with the lid sitting on the keg? What lightweight lid did you find to replace the coleman cup?
