The Longhorn Engineer visits Ben and they start construction of a giant solenoid to try and crush cans with. Circuits break and the air is filled with acrid smoke as they toil on a design...
Ben travels to a shop to rout the case for the Xbox 360, then forces the still-visiting Longhorn Engineer to help him sand and polish the pieces.
With help from his friend Jason Jones, Ben tries using a stepper motor with gearing to crush the can. Seeing that it works, but pressed for time, they brainstorm a way to finish building the device in the future.
