Interesting way to save a few bucks. I'm thinking you have to be real careful not to put too much air in there though.... KABOOM! Might not blow up the shop, but could make a serious mess when your cans get warm. Cool stuff.

I was thinking the valve stem could also be used to read the pressure on a new can to know a safe pressure to put in.

Neat way to make an aerosol of ATF+acetone penetrating oil.

I like the concept behind this, and the fact that it can be done.
There are two scary things here.... 1) If you over-pressurize the can,
like BP said, BOOM! 2) A clown figured out how to do this. ( watch the
end of the video where he labels the can "lube" ) -- I hate clowns!
