It has got to be at least 50 years old. My dad had used it to hold rivets and a riveter. He has been gone almost three years now. My wife said if I tear into it, it had better work, or she would be really ticked at me. Its a worthy cause. But would it work?

Not quite done. Will find a newer coffee can and test it out. After im sure it works or doesnt, then can decide if I can use the antique can. In the meantime, I will use it to store rivets.
