I just bought a 6.8cu ft Holiday chest freezer today off of craigslist for $75, only one year old. I figured it was a pretty good score so I went for it....it still looks brand new!!! I plugged it in and it gets pretty cold so I assume its straight. Guy said he was in the navy and relocating to japan and having to get rid of all but the necessities. My question is does anyone have any recommendations for temperature controls? I am not good with electricity but a couple of my buddies are so there is no problem getting it wired up, but I would like something pretty easy to control and is not too complicated. I don't plan on building a collar just yet....I am going the cheap route with picnic taps for the moment.
