Default Custom CO2 Distributor

I'm in the process of building a kegerator that will hold 5 cornelius kegs when completed. has anyone built or designed their own CO2 distributor?? or, can you point the way to a how-to that might help? any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

This may be overkill, but it's a great place to start.

Here's the thread that our own tnlandsailor created before he compiled the pdf.

I just bought mine online from here: http://morebeer.com/browse.html?cate...yword=&x=1&y=1. It was cheap enough.

Anyone built (or seen) one of these with gas regs on the exit side?

I'm toying with early plans for an 8- or 10-tap chest freezer conversion, and would like to be able to run 2-3 different pressures (hey, if I'm going this far, why compromise with extra-fizzy Bitters and not-quite-fizzy Hefes?). Could just set up 2-3 tanks/regs, I suppose, but a 1-tank setup with regs after the split seems more elegant
