This car transmission piece just happened to fit perfectly around the base of a compressed air can, catching snug on the crimped bottom lip.  A second piece fit nicely over the top, while another fit right into the nozzel top.

I used a center punch to knock out the valve (...dugh... make sure the air can is empty.), and poked a hole in the bottom,  Then a threaded rod and two nylon capping nuts hold it all together.  A bit of Liquid Nails went between each part.

Above you can see a 3" paper spindle core used for some visual detail. And below are some prototype solar panels... with blast holes.
