Anyone know where I can get attachments to connect my faucets directly to the liquid out connect or know what's needed to DIY this?

They have some here http://www.williamsbrewing.com/BEER_FAUCETS_C65.cfm and you could probably get them many other places.

I liked the days when one could wax philosophically about how great the site admins were to provide a link that could answer practically any question ever asked on the forum.

lmgtfy.com takes all the fun out of being an ass.

I did google it. I guess I didn't have the right combination of words to get that result. I kept getting faucets and clamps and shanks and disconnects as separate pieces.

Mostly I'm interested if it's possible to DIY?

Thanks to everyone else.

Do keep in mind that unless you greatly decrease the CO2 pressure each time you pour a beer you'll end up with a glass full of foam (no restrictions between keg and tap). You'd be better off going with 10' of 3/16 line and a picnic tap.

Get a threaded disconnect it will be more solid then barbed and make a trip to the hardware store with your faucet and and the disconnect. I made mine a horizontal unit that would go over the side of the keg because the first configuration vertical had way to much play on it from the connect to post.
