My New Jockey Box
 
I had a 2 tap jockeybox but got in a sweet deal awhile back for 4 new ss perlick/shank combos. My jockey box was powered by a 7 pass coldplate so it was clear to me it was time to upgrade. Our big beer competition is this weekend and Im in charge of the complimentary beers, so there was no better time

I started with an ebay find, a vintage thermos brand cooler. Its 'rustic' right now, next year it will hopefully get some new paint, not sure what Im going to do with it yet. Marked where the taps would go.

For the back I prefer one hole, although bulkheads would be nice, I just couldnt justify the cost. 1.5 inch hole allows me to pull through the lines I need and makes it easier to store. These are the plumbing parts to make it clean. Then a dry fit of where it will go, and then the hole.

This is with the pvc slid into the hole and nuts secured on both inside and out.

with all the liquid lines, will there be enough space for ice? j/k ;)

I have the same exact cooler and the same color for my jockey box. If you need to touch the paint up( mine had some rust spots) walmart brand red paint for $1.00 is an exact match.

That is awesome. Where the kegs in a big fridge somewhere?

nope just under the table.. Dont need to ice the kegs. coldplate does it as they are being served.

You do not have the kegs chilled ? I thought that was only the case with SS coil in the cooler. I am going to build a JB with a 7 pass cold plate and read that the kegs need to be pre chilled
