Default Drip Trays - Where to buy?

These things are seriously expensive!

At the prices I have seen around the websites, etc., my drip tray will be the single most expensive component of my kegerator. I have pieced everything else together relatively cheaply.

Any cheaper drip trays around? I don't care how it looks or whether or not its stainless.

If anyone is ready to get rid of one, I'd buy a used one, too.

Look for the soap dish.

It looks like a great option for a tower build in which the drip tray sits on a flat surface.

I had a friend in a machine shop bend one from a sheet of stainless. Mabe if you made a template from cardboard, someone in that trade could hook you up.

DISSECTION TRAY

I just ordered two of them. Unfortunately, AS&S doesn't have a picture, but for $8 each, I bit. I can build the backs up with wood, if necessary.

I used a counter suck drip pan on the side of my fridge. It was cheap, stainless, and eady to incoporate to the fridge. Does not look bad either. Here is a link to the store that I purchased it from.

I got this one from ACU for $60, all stainless. This was back in May. I believe that ACU has increased their prices a little since then. The tower is also from ACU.

I think having the taps on the side is the only way to go. What did you do to make sure you didn't hit anything you shouldn't? Any help would be great?

Check on ebay - I got a really nice brass one for $20. Of course, the seller was in England so it took about a month to get it.
