    Got most of them from my local craft beer shop, they mostly sell singles so had plenty spare.

    I am new here, and sorry for quoting a months old post.

    I may be able to give some insights into buying cans from Visy.

    I strongly believe that the only way you will get a better price than the one you have been quoted is to increase the size of your order. Group buy perhaps?

    It is the simple economics of it. They can't afford to sell them any cheaper at small quantities.

    I know this because I have worked on the production line at their Smithfield can plant for the last 19 years.

    I am not in sales or PR or anything. I am a maintenance fitter. So before anyone asks I cannot get cheap cans.

    I’d be happy to go for a group buy but unfortunately I-
    1. Cannot afford to purchase the 1/2 pallet of cans and
    2. I have nowhere to store them until such time as the other group members collect there cans

    Thanks for your inspiration on this post. As a result we have decided to also start to make a splash guard accessory too as we feel its probably a necessary accessory. To get really low DO you really want to have those can's really fun and as a result you inevitably get some splash when it starts spinning. Here is the first version but we will probably make the guard come down a bit further as the skirt is a bit short as it is right now.



    We have made this to suit the current Cannular machine and it will also fit the new semi-automated machine too.

    The semi auto is something that we need as we already have a number of micro-breweries using these machines and they are doing batches of several thousand litres. The semi auto machine is very similar size but has more working components in the machine.

    The Semi Auto has a few key differences including:
    1. It's easier to re-configure the unit for the different can sizes
    2. It's faster and has a slightly larger motor with higher RPM and this makes it also more suitable for thicker steel cans that require more torque. So it can be used for large baked bean tins etc.
    3. All you need to do is place the can on the turn table and press a button and the table will lift and the can will seam automatically. This makes it really easy to operate quite fast and without any
    4. The adjustments on the machine have quite large field of motion meaning you can adjust for multiple aluminium to steel cans and different heights of aluminium cans more easily without the need for different spacers to be purchased.
    5. This machine is more expensive which is the only draw back. It will cost probably about $750 or something like that. So I think home brewers who just want to seam home brew aluminium cans would go for the standard Cannular manual machine.

    We will also start stocking the steel baked bean style tins in the near future too.

    Any video of it in action?

    I could see this being good for food stuff in the steel cans you mentioned.

    So how do I sneak this one past the missus? You can buy an awful lot of canned food for $750. Thinking, thinking.

    Baked beans style cans with a ring-pull top, or the plain old need-a-can-opener style?

    Here is a really poorly produced video just to give you a sneak peak. We have not technically released the machine but we are 99% finished as you can see.

    We will do the ring pull type on the can. Most likely we will start with the 500ml ones.

    Nice, that's a very smart design which can be easily retrofitted. Well played!
