This is in another thread, but if you are like me you don't always go back through every repost. So I thought I would make a new posting of this.

This is my start at a new draft cabinet that will be on top of my chest freezer. I am waiting on the tap shanks, but have lots of it built. Here are some pictures:

This is front view with the engines set -


Here is a close up of one of the beer engines from the front -


And another with the engine engaged -



Here is a rear view of with a beer engine -




It will be another week until I get back to this, but it is at least off the drawing board! I have to build the drip tray set-up, attach my inline regulators, insulate the works, but on a rear hatch for access and oil and seal the whole works, plus attach it to the chest freezer and build the bar to cover for the chest freezer. I have a few weekends of busy work in store.

And the faucets waiting for the shanks, including an older style stout faucet with a flow adjustment (I love Ebay and I love these stout faucets - beat the crap out of the newer models) -

OMG!

















































Can I come over to your house and play with your toys? They are much better than mine.

BTW, where did you get those beer engines?

Ebay. Some guy in Denver was selling them. So shipping wasn't too bad. You can find them on Ebay in England, but shipping will raise the price a bit...

Who knows the best way to cut/drill holes in slate? I need 5 holes for my faucet shanks and really don't want to crack this thing!

I would think that a drill-press on it's slowest speed, with a hole-saw and lots of oil would get the job done. Then again, I say that about a lot of things...

Maybe use water instead of oil as you don't want to stain that slate. Come to think of it, you should be able to find a continuous-edge diamond hole-saw used for cutting holes in counter-tops and stuff. Got any stone counter-top places near you? I'm sure they would cut a couple holes for some blessed beer.

Counter-top people, now that is a good idea. They tend to be tool belt wearing beer drinkers...

But I don't want them trying to drill holes in my slate. I will be happy to give them beer however.
