Most likely a reference to the motor's housing being made from cast metal (thick) or from rolled sheet (thin).

with kabby. I can't think of any other way to reference it.

But I don't who who would want to make or accept a thin can. It would be really cheap.

I dunno. My 16 year old 2hp GE took a crapload of abuse from me and was still running like a champ when I replaced it with the 8hp D&D limo can. No complaints from me about that thin can!

I was inquiring about something on the Plum Quick forum and the response was whether I had a thin can motor or thick can motor. Just wasnt sure what he was refering to

Ask them what it means on that forum and let us know what the answer is.
