I quit trying to tell people, I don't have a dog in this hunt, but I don't see a better deal.

Very happy with the rebuilds.

Go ahiead and wait and and play with e-bay, or just order direct, your call.

I don't get it.

I'd been thinking about getting into kegging than the NB deal sealed it for me. I got my 2 used ones today adn they have a sweet smell of rootbeer in them. Now that I got the kegs purchased, all I have to do is figure out hot to use them. Like learn how to clean, fill, and dispense - the small things - and I'll be golden.

(I foresee the first few batched being crappy......)

Well, when I ordered them last Friday, the option of 4 was not still available. But I was able to get 2 for $20 each.

The units I got were all single handle so $15 each is the current going rate for that type cornie.

Also 1 of mine had a bastard lid that won't fit any of the other cornies.

maybe you'll find this helpful for cleaning strategy with your new kegs. i know i did.
Lots to read but it's worth it, imo.

Default Post problems

So, I tore down all 4 kegs to clean and replace all the rings. I threw all the bits'n'pieces into a bucket to clean. At the time I noticed that the posts were not all the same (not the diff between the gas in/beer out) but I figured what the heck, the kegs are all the same, so the posts must be interchangable, right? Wrong! I have two gas in posts that don't seem to fit on any of the kegs!! WTF?? They came OFF the kegs, so it stands to reason that they should fit on SOMEWHERE!!.

Crap.

Crap.
Man

I feel for you I did the same thing only with about 10 of em. Figuring I save some time doing them all at once.

Don't know how many hours I wasted and still ended up with 1 that didn't seem to fit anything.

Oh well live and learn. Die and forget it all.
