Before pull tabs... there were laces....
Okay , I’m the old guy now
We used those on juice cans and my parents used it on Carnation milk for coffee
Yep, got a few of those still around too.
In fact, I think theres a case if ATF still stashed around here in the old style cans...
I had a 66 Olds that popped the radio fuse . There are a lot of things I can do without but I need music. I had no spare fuse but there were pull tabs in the car . Break off the ring and push the tab beside the fuse and we’re groove’n again
In addition to having used the pointy end of the church key to open drinks when I was young, I remember what there was before that kind of can. You could get beer in cans that looked like an old brake fluid can, straight can with conical top and small, screw-on cap.
I therefore lay claim to the, “Really Old” crown.
I think he was using a tubing cutter to cut the meter heads off.
@Paul G. @MarkieMark , you guys are pretty slick~
Wonder when oil switched to plastic bottles?
I don’t really feel old, but I totally remember opening Hawaiian Punch cans with them.
Well, not me, I wasn’t the one using them back then, but definitely recall my parents and older relatives using them quite often.
I’ve used both ends in the dim distant past, but don’t have one anymore
Our family was quite poor growing up. We didn't have a whole lot of kitchen appliances, including a traditional can opener. We would use the pointy end of this to open entire cans, we would have to poke holes all the way around the circumference of the top! And then use a fork to lever out the horribly disfigured metal top and hope no metal pointy chips fell into the can of food.
That pointy end of the can opener was a life saver, and it miraculously never dulled.
I used ours last week to open a can of evaporated milk to make a pumpkin pie.
As I recall, I commonly used an oil spout tool that punctured the can- into the mid 70's or so.
I am going to guess that tool quickly slipped into obsolescence between 76' and 79' or so?
Perhaps a little fuzzy on that memory.
This was also the tried-and-true Boy Scout method of opening beans!
That oil spout was pretty common, I remember always having one in the tool box wrapped in a rag... The last one I had was all fancy with a foam gasket.
I have always loved the guitar parts of this wonderful movie soundtrack.
I hear that Tommy Tedesco played most of it.
Yep, the P-38 was one of the great fighter planes in its time! Oh wait, you're talking about the other P-38? Can't tell you how many cans of Hormel Chili or Cornbeef Hash I opened with one of those. I have many fond memories of camping trips using one.
Funny though, for some reason I was usually hungover opening a can of Cornbeef Hash for morning breakfast.
How does a guy from Alabama know about "the green death"?
I had a torrid affair back in the 1980's with a gal who was from New York State.
She had lived quite close to the Hudson River near West Point, as I recall.
Used to talk about Genny Cream Ales with some fondness.
It took me a few years, but I finally found some and enjoyed them.
Genny Cream wasn't green death where I grew up. That was Haffenreffer!
I found rusted out Carling cans like that in the woods behind our house when we moved to Massachusetts in 1965. That's WAY old.
Looks like a can of power steering fluid, but those had screw-on caps.
