Here's a freebie from me to you all.
Get a "safety cutting" can opener, (they cut from the side, not the top)
Find a normal "soup sized" can with a pop top lid.
Be sure the bottom is able to be cut with a normal can opener,
not the one piece "molded" kind like on the new soup cans. Fruit cans work well.
Soak can until label falls off.
Remove bottom of can, eat whatever is inside, wash clean and dry.
Insert a card, or cards of your choice.
Grab your handy dandy micro-torch and some solder and seal the bottom back up tight.
Sand with fine grit sandpaper to smooth solder seam.
Print out one of the 3 "Royal Flush" graphics I made up here:

http://www.4shared.com/file/216870226/d3......ap3.html
http://www.4shared.com/file/216870604/8f......rap.html
(or anything else you wish) on peel off adhesive paper.
Attach to can.
As to how to make the chosen cards disappear and then to reappear inside
the sealed can (held by spectator?) is up to you!

Hope you like the idea! *ENJOY!*

Mickey: Thank you for sharing your idea, and graphics. I am already thinking of different ways that this premise can be utilized.

Best.

Try haveing it signed then palm off the card. Then go to your close up case and load the card.

Thanks!

UPDATE: Using a can of Chow Mein noodles works great!
Maybe canned nuts might work too? Dry foods seem best.

I have used both Crazy Glue and Contact Cement to seal the cans.

The great thing is you can seal ANY item that will fit in the can.

Sweet! Thanks a lot for the great idea Mickey. There are as many possibilities for this as there are things that will fit in the can!

Good idea on the crazy glue MagicMan1957, I now use it for kid's parties.
Adults are a bit more observant and scrutinize the can more than the little ones, so I still solder/buff those. Thanks! It saves me a good deal of time in setup!

Thank you for this gift. I have been working on this for the last week and am having nothing but trouble.

Firstly, there are two types of can openers that do this. One type cuts below the lip entirely, the other cuts one the lip just below the end. I assume this is the type to use.

When I use the micro torch and the solder it just beads up and runs all over the place. Very little goes into the divot of where the lid comes off. I have having a very tough time. I have no experience with solder. Can you please help and give me some tips. Thank you very much.

BTW, this seems to me to be a great finish to Scotch and Soda with the Centavo ending up in the can.

Are you using flux when you solder?

Yes. The man at home depot suggested it. It does help a little. But the can still looks pretty messy, and I am still having a hard time.

Files unavailable. Must have missed the gift. Didn't know it was a limited offer.

Cheers.
Just cause they say it, doesn't make it true.

I like card to can of spam Smile

The safety can opener I use doesn't cut the can, instead it uses leverage to pop open the hermetic seal on the can. That way replacing the lid is a breeze, and the super glue method works fine. No need to solder! The only down side is it roughs up the label a bit, but you can have a second label ready to replace the old one without too much effort.

Can't remember the name of the company that makes it off the top of my head (I'm not at home right now or I'd check) I think it's "Great Cooks" or something like that.

I think that might be "Good Cooks." My wife loves their silicone rubber spatulas.
Thank You for the no solder idea, I'll have to try that.

Sorry about the missing pictures, they were just graphics of royal flushes, different types. Type it (Royal Flush) into Google and then search images, they're all out there.

Another good tip is,,, if possible find a can where the label is already glued on the can a little lower on the end you will be opening.

This way the opener will not damage the label at all.

The one I have is the "Good Cook Classic Safe Cut Can Opener" the other safe cut openers that the company makes may use the same idea, but I'm not sure.
This is what it looks like:

Hope that helps.
