I would like to thank everyone for all the quality threads and posts on Coffin Keezers. I have read a ton of them to make sure that I had a decent idea what I was doing! Hopefully this is one more thread that inspires someone.
This project took me 4 weeks start to finish once I started buying stuff. That does not include any time Ive spent reading other threads / learning. I would have had it done quicker except some personal issues came up that didnt allow me to work on it much for a week or so.
My initial budget was 1,500. This was a project to replace a Perlick kegorator from the 70s that my wifes grandpa passed down to me. As far as budget goes
I went over on some categories but didnt do too bad. I would estimate I have about 1750 in it including all parts and misc. purchases (some which I didnt really need of course!)
I used a chop saw, circular saw, drill, tile saw, and nail gun as primary tools. Had to buy a 4 hole saw (4.5 was 20 dollars more!).
