I never have seen a half gallon can

He didn't say "can"
He's talking about paint.
(Probably in a gallon can)

X2 on the welding gas in the paint to displace the oxygen. I got this tip from Kevin Tietz about 5 years ago. I do some part time collision work so about 4 years ago I was shooting some Chroma snap clear and had about 4 oz of hardner left in a 8 oz can. I used the welding gas trick and just last month needed to use some clear and tried the same clear and hardner. It dried and buffed fine. I was pleasently suprised. Before I started doing this I had hardner set up in the can. I do this all the time.
