I havent used a grinder to remove a cans top in years, I kinda like my eye brows,but I'd NEVER throw one out until I reused it, tin snips are a lot quicker and cleaner.wrap masking tape around the edge as soon as you get the top off ,It bites
I pretty sure it was thinner, there was enough paint on what was left of the can to tell me it was the product that I sold the shop...Thank God nobody got hurt but, I heard that a few of the boys needed to go home and change a few items of clothing.

Putting tape around the edges of reducer cans with the tops cut off is good advice, I know I was told to do that years ago and still had to learn the hard way.
