Beer cans normally have a protective plastic coating on the inside, and paint on the outside. Did you remove those? In that case I see no reason why it shouldn't work, unless the beer cans in question are made of some very exotic alloy, which I doubt. AFAIK, beer cans are made of pure aluminium, perhaps with a few % of Mg and/or Mn.


Simple, because you can. It is more fun to make things than to buy them. You get that nice sense of accomplishment for a job well done.

Point taken.
