When this reader set out to build one of our plans, he had a question:
In Michigan, where I am from, we recycle most pop/beer cans, however I drink a juice supplement for bad joints every day which does not have a bottle/can deposit on them. They are 100% recyclable aluminum so I have been saving them. Unfortunately, they take up a lot of room, so I decided to build your crusher. But a ways into the project I realized the cans are a different size. Taller and smaller in diameter. The diameter doesn’t matter but I am concerned about the taller height interfering with the insertion of the can into the crusher. The cans are 1/4″ taller than a standard 12 oz. pop/beer can. Do the plans allow for enough clearance for this?

After hearing from one of our staff that the Can Crusher plan offers 5 inches of clearance, we were happy to hear from Bob again:
Thank you it worked!
