Imagining this thing in use... an intake hopper would be almost a prerequisite to the design. Then like homeowner wood chippers, you can just make the hopper long enough to keep hands out of the pinch area for adequate safety. Also it would be convenient if you could bring a small collection of cans to the garage, then simply drop em in a hopper and walk away... have crushing start a minute after sensing a can, so maybe nobody has to hear it. I can imagine such a hopper itself being a somewhat complex project by the time it is reliable and jam free.
