Hi truglodite the idea is definitely two push buttons that when pushed with turn on a relay and actuate a pneumatic solenoid to operate a ram that crushes the can. Two buttons to keep the operator from accidently crushing an appendage. Later I plan on expanding this project with a hopper and a sensor to start with the buttons and crush until the hopper is empty. I am getting parts from amazon I will use a 12vdc power supply and a relay for the solenoid.
