Pulsed Magnetic Can Crusher PLANS

Now this is kinda cool. Looking for a can crusher? Do you want to do more recycling? Now you "can."

Relying on just the power of magnetism, you can watch with delight as cans miraculously collapse under their own weight. No wait...they aren't actually selling the actual can crusher, they are just selling the plans.

I always thought that aluminum wasn't affected by magnetic fields (I remember watching an old "How Stuff Works" type video where a can separator determined which ones were aluminum based on whether or not they stuck to the magnetic conveyor belt), but if they actually do science demonstrations with this, why not. I guess you learn something new every day.

But wouldn't plans for making a magnetic can crusher be availabe on the internet? Like, for free?
