Guy Cerberich's largest oil can is a railroad can, probably 3 feet tall at the top of the spout, he says. The smallest? A watchmaker's oil can. "It's about the diameter of a quarter," he says. Big and small, the cans make a novel exhibit at shows. Guy and his wife, Ruth, are shown here with the display.
