Looking forward to the pics

Great thread and idea!

Brewmasterswarehouse is also my LHBS. Where are you located and are you part of a HB club?

I built one of these a while back too, but used a 1/4 male flare fitting alone. I only use 1/4 Flare disconnects (ball and pin) so I can connect directly to the line and don't have to have different adapters. I like to take my disconnects apart and give them a good soak after running a keg through them.

Cheap and easy line cleaner.

Nicely done. I've always wanted to make one of those, but honestly when a keg kicks I have to clean it and I just pump that through the lines.

Finished mine,

I had an extra ball valve, so I attached that to a quick disconnect and now I can do both sankey keg attachments and corneys.
