Default Size of Shanks?

I have a chest freezer that I use as a Lagering Chest and for draft beer. I'm just using picnic taps at the moment. I got a bar fridge that I'm converting and putting a DIY PVC tower on it. So for new stuff I'll need.

Two Faucets
Two Handles
Two Shanks

Anything else?
And what size of shanks do I need?

Thanks

Rudeboy

Depends on how thick the wall of your fridge is. You cann't go to long but the extra will stick out on the inside.

If your not going with the tailpieces welded on you will need two rubber washers tailpieces and beer nuts like these at the bottom of the page.

Nope no welding.

So I need the hoses (which I already have) which go in the:

Tail Piece which is held on by a,
Wing nut with a,
Rubber Washer (or two for each?) and the Tail Piece connects with the,
Shank, which connects to the,
Faucet.

Tail piece, wing nut, rubber washers, shank, and faucet. Anything else?

4"? 3"? Shanks?

Thanks
Rudeboy

Beer line is hooked into the tail piece which is connected to the shank with a beer nut with the rubber washer between the tail piece and the shank.
