    IJO -- You work mostly from home.

    If you buy this, you will always have beer where you work. :drunk2:

    Why is cost even an issue? :jump3:

    - cres

    p.s. You might note some degredation in the quality of your work and the incidence of sleeping in the shop might go up. :zzzzzz:

    Price...

    Ivan: Yes this was a DIY and the only big problem is getting a good price on used PEPSI kegs (yes soda kegs). Coke kegs are a little to big and you would only fit 1 keg in the fridge.

    I got a contact that works at Pepsi and got them for 20/each.
    IF not I have a contact neer Montreals that sells them but for 35.00 plus shipping.

    This project without the kegs comes to about $500.00 (fridge included)
    Step by step can be found here


    My cost was as follow:

    Fridge (Sylvania from Canadian tire) on special @ 139.00 (reg: 199.99) and any fridge that is about 4.5cu is good.

    CO2 tank : 105 (taxe in)
    2 tap draft tower : 102.00 (taxe in)
    regulator: (44.00)

    liquid line and Co2 line (peanuts)
    Connectors (Ball lock) @ 4.00/each

    Strainless TEE (split the Co2 to two kegs) - $1or2
    Keg O'ring (peanuts again)

    cres : I already always have beer where I work... I guess the only difference is I won't have to get up to get one as it'll be right beside me... hehe

    Buckaroo: thanks for the breakdown... time to go talk to the wife
