Description 

The KegLand Cannular can seamer is one of the most compact and easy to use benchtop can seamers around. With a single operator you can seam/seal the cans in under 5 seconds meaning this compact machine is suitable for small breweries or brewpubs doing small production runs. The Cannular comes with a die for a size 202 beer can lid.  Additional dies will be available in the future, but for right now, only cans with a size 202 lid can be canned on this machine. 

SAFE 24 VOLT POWER OPTIONS If you have ever used a can seamer you know that you can sometimes spill liquids while processing cans. As a result we have made the Cannular machine with 24v DC so even when you make a mess you don't have a risk of electrocuting yourself. This also makes the machine easier to clean and wash down.
An optional step down transformer (item X84) plugs into any 110 volt outlet. If you do not purchase this optional transformer, you need to get an Anderson Plug twin wire lead (our item Z25) so you can feed power into the Cannular Canning Machine.  Suitable DC power sources besides transformers include 18 or 20 volt cordless drill batteries, and even car batteries.

GO ANYWHERE & EASILY RECYCLED Cans are a fantastic choice for outdoor events, parties, pool events, or at the beach. Broken glass can be dangerous and difficult to clean up completely. Cans on the other hand are the safest choice in this respect.

LIGHT BLOCK  Many beverages especially beer can get damaged quickly due to light. If you expose many beers to sunlight for even 5 minutes the beer can become light damaged ("skunked"). Even softer light such as indoor lights will damage beer over time and noticeable skunking can occur with both incandescent and fluorescent light globes within hours. So unless you keep your glass bottles in the dark all the time you will compromise the beer quality. Aluminium cans solve this problem by blocking 100% of damaging light. Dimensions 14" depth x 9" wide x 20" height.

ALIGHTMENT MIGHT BE NEEDED UPON ARRIVAL:
The Cannular Canning machine comes already adjusted to use the 500ml cans that we sell. If however you use different can sizes or the machine has become out of alignment in shipping you may need to adjust the Cannular.

Click HERE for adjustment instructions. Adjustment requires the use of wrenches provided with the Cannular as well as a metric feeler gauge (like the type used when fixing cars).

Avoid
I haven't don't the caliper testing, but after wasting about 1/3 of the cans, I have yet to have gotten this thing to work properly. No matter how I adjust the can up and down, no can has held pressure and none have been carbonated. Ultimately the cans leak as soon as it's been seamed. So far this thing is junk, great concert but a POS.

William's Brewing Responds:  It sounds like your unit was not properly calibrated at the factory, or somehow became out of calibration in shipping. We are sending a prepaid Fedex return label so you can send it back to us for needed calibration.

Works for me
I canned a few and did the caliper testing as suggested. The  overlapping inside seam between the can top and can itself was off. It was 0.96mm, longer than the minimum 0.4 mm but less than the ideal which is greater than 1 mm. 
The seam thickness was greater than what was suggested but it says that’s okay as long as you have the overlap. My cans seamed, didn’t leak, and appear to hold.  My only gripe is I downloaded the operational manual,  but nowhere does it say how to assemble the machine. I did know you had to remove the Allen screw to insert the handle for the turntable. I fiddled with that for a little before i realized it needed to come out. Either include paper assembly instructions with the canner or include them online with the manual. Otherwise I’m pleased.

Works but needs setup
My can seamer didn’t come with any instructions or paper that pointed to the calibration instructions. Other users on HomebrewTalk indicated that the Seamer worked out of the box, but that was not true for me. I wasted about twenty cans between trying to figure out technique and calibrating the machine. My feeler gauges were too wide to fit in the y position gaps so I ended up 3D printing custom ones. Once calibrated the machine works great. At a minimum it should come with paperwork pointing to the calibration instructions.

William's Brewing Responds:  Yes, KegLand has gone paper less with all instructions available on line only. See here for a link to the adjustment instructions:

Needs a lot of work
Good price point but not ready to go out of the box.  About a third of the box wasted due to cans crushing and correcting the gaps.  Almost seems like they set the gaps backwards during manufacturing.  

Take the time to check all specs before attempting to can beer.  3 stars only because it appears to be seeming correctly now.  

William's Brewing Responds: Yes, it is important to adjust the height of the platform (it is threaded and adjusts like a screw) to the can so it is snug but not too tight when the lever is pulled to bring it up to seal. Too tight and cans deform or crush, too loose and cans leak.

Revised: Cannular Canning Machine - simple and sweet
I've now did a 3 case can run, so thought I'd update my review.

Apparently some of the power supplies were bad.  I didn't have this issue, but it's pretty cool that William's reached out to all that purchased this item to get in front of the problem and offer temporary solutions while they wait for good power supplies to come in.

I had a few seems fail early, which I think were because I didn't push the can top down enough and foam raised the top before it got a good seal.  After having this happen a couple of times in the first 10 cans or so, I made sure to fully press the top down and didn't have any further issues.  All together it took me 77 cans to get 72 good cans.  Two from bad seals that were my fault, two that leaked from can damage, and one that I tried to fill right from my tap like a crowler and didn't get a full enough can - jury is still out if I can use this to quickly fill from my taps to replace growlers.  

Looking forward to cracking these open in a few weeks!

Can it be powered with a 12 volt battery trickle charger?
We are not sure, it would depend o the model of charger and power output.

I own a bosche anniallator 24 volt cordless hammer drill that runs on 24volt 3 amp hour batteries.Will the canner run on those without any issues?
It will run on your 24 volt DC tool batteries. It can sometimes be hard to get the alligator clips on the optional power lead to attach to drill batteries if they have smooth contacts (no place for the alligator clip to grip).

Can you can condition with this setup? If so, what sugar ratio do they suggest and are there any special steps?
Yes, we have used 4.5 ounces of sugar by weight for 5 gallons of beer. Make sure the beer has completely fermented out before canning - we recommend always using a secondary fermenter, and leaving the beer for a few extra days before canning, just to minimize the possibility of canning beer that is still fermenting.

Does this canner do counter-pressure filling with a CO2 tank hook up? If not, does it have a mechanism to flush the can with CO2 just prior to filling, like a beer gun?
No, although you can use something like Blichmann Beergun to fill your cans before sealing, or use the natural carbonation method (priming the beer before canning).
