Default In search of a cheap dual shank

I currently have one tap running through the door on my Sanyo 4912. I would like to add a second tap, but since the current hole is drilled in the center, I don't want to drill another off-center hole.

So, my only option is to buy a dual shank, e.g.:

Unfortunately, the price of nearly $100 is ridiculous. I searched around and couldn't find anything else much cheaper. Any ideas on where to get ahold of one at a decent price?

TIA

No, that's an extremely specialized item and I've never seen them for less. Even bars don't use them much.

Why not drill two new holes and put a plate over the current hole?

I agree, drill two new holes, one on each side of the original one, maybe make a backing plate to cover the whole area, it could hide the original hole as well as trim out the new ones.

How much can fit in a sanyo? If you can fit 3 kegs then just do 3 taps If not then maybe a 3 gallon keg can fit?

It only has room for two kegs.

That's a good idea about adding a plate in the middle to cover the hole. that's probably the route I'll go.

Thanks!
