For those of you who have done a Sanyo mini fridge conversion and mounted a tower in front of the coolant line on the top of the fridge, is there any reason I can't drill the hole behind that line? Anyone done this? I'd like my homemade tower to be set back and not in the middle of the top of the fridge.

Thanks for any help....

Dave, I did not realize this was you. Nice work on the keezer, it is better than I expected. Go East Side Brewers!

Here's mine purchased not one month ago from a sweet old couple moving to a retirement community. They only wanted $25 for it, too! The woman I bought it from said, "take good care of it. You're getting a real good friend."

Gonna eventually fix it up, but I might still keep the Schlitz tap that came with it!

Here's my 1950's GE Kegerator rebuild. Found the refrigerator for $75 on craigslist. Tore it down completely, repainted, re-insulated, and replaced the thermostat with an ardiuno/relay/webserver combo. It's a constant work in progress.

My old beer fridge took a crap so I took our small drop in freezer and converted it, nothing fancy but it works only thing I want to add is a temp gauge in the front

Default Temp controller

Hey everyone, I was checking out everyone's keezer pics and I wanna convert one of mine now!

I was wondering what everyone is using for temp control? I have two of these johnson controls - temp controllers.

This is nice. I'm about to build mine and wanted some more ideas. Could you tell me what size wood you used for your collar?
