1 of 2(50%)would recommend this product to a friend.
The concept is the tool would cut the inner vertical edge of the rim like the newer side cutting can openers. Like a tubing cutter. First of all, don't even think of using a ratchet. It would take an eternity. You have to use a half inch drive electric impact driver.
I have to dehead heavy gauge steel drums that spray foam comes in. Maybe this tool would work on lighter material. I go around the rim for at least six turns, which takes forever. Then I beat on it with a sledge hammer. If I am lucky, the steel is scored enough that it will eventually tear.
