I can fit four ball locks snug on the floor and a fifth on the hump. They changed the design so it's a full depth hump now of about 9". I think my 5lb tank and regulators sits below the freezer wall height. The collar gives another 9" of height. That might be enough for a 10lb tank.

Here's the build thread.

It's got a step inside to make space for the compressor so you are limited to about 17 inches of height from the top of the step to the lid. Just got one and was bummed that I couldn't fit a 5 gallon carboy in it.

You only have about 7 inches between the wall and the step so I don't think you could fit any corny kegs in this.

Ed, thanks for this..

I actually have the first one in the post, and looking to make it my new keezer..

Looks like I am going to have to make a 8" collar in order to accommodate another keg. Anyone see anything wrong with this? We have an amish guy that is going to make it out of cedar, should be nice looking..

The only problem here that I see is your ownership of an amish guy.

I picked up a Sunbeam 7.2 at Menards for $198. I am convinced it is the same as the Magic Chef. I can fit 4 on the floor and 2 on the hump with a collar, or a 1/2 bbl on the floor, and 2 cornys on the hump, plus 5 lbs of CO2 with dual primary. I imagine that this would only be true with ball lock, as the kegs are pretty tight side by side when two deep. I can take pictures if it would help anyone.
