Default Temporary bummer

Building my CFC and I need one 3 inch long piece of 1/2" copper tubing..and I really don't want to go buy a piece of tubing to get it. Really wanted it done today.

just shut off the water to part of the house and "borrow" a small piece of pipe. You can patch it tomorrow. You have to have priorities...

Well, I thought about that, but SWMBO is home. It's not a good day to die.

Broke down and bought a half length at Lowe's. CFC complete!
Moved to next project...getting my ice cube cooler to empty better. Decided to slightly redesign the manifold and quickly realized that gave me a 5 inch piece left over...... should have done that project first I guess.

The CFC works just fine. I tested it by running hot tap water through the beer line while running cold tap water through the cool side. Nice cold water at the outlet.
Also fixed an issue with my Ice Cube MLT which kept it from draining out well. Still not perfect but that's an air leak and easily cured.
Now I need a welder who works cheap to add some stainless fittings to my keggle.
