New Use for Tin Cans. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 25 May 1889
New Use for Tin Cans Seit.vrs of tinned iron have long boon a waste product, whose application, for any purposo worthy of tho intrinsic value of tho metals contained in them, has boon an unsolved problem. It is truo that scraps of this kind have been cast, but tho hardness and granular structure render tho metal fit only for useas weights. Also, to a slight extent, the tin has been removed by electrolytic processes. ' But,' the ' American Manufacturer says, ' there has not been any definite use of this product as a material manufacture until its recent use for nails. Scraps of tin aro cut by dies into rectangular bits, with a length of about throo times their width. These scraps aro thon fed from an. automatic hopper between dies, whon they are squeezed first to square form, liko a nail, and then headed. Nails of this kind aro well fitted for many purposes, being i'reo from tendency to rust, also light, very rigid, and capable of being driven into the hardest wood without buckling.'...
