I didn't have the internet for 5 months or so here is what i accomplished over that time first pic is of the keezer as it started life.

I liked it but it was ghetto rigged and built with out a single power tool I traded a guy a sixer for access to his wood equipment heres the final result

next is my 1980's mongomery ward mini fridge it will fit anything from a 10 gallon cornie down with only removing the shelves and bending the freezer down

here is the controller. house thermostat based relay controlled using a DPST 120 volt relay with 12 volt coils one side of the relay is the hot line of 120 and the other controls a 12v computer fan the 12 volts is provided by a 1.25 amp transformer it pulls .4 amps when the fan is on and relay switched. it also has a LED that turns on when the fridge is on

heres an internal shot i put a chunk of sheet into works brake and made a plate that puts the fan about 2 inchs from the cooler coils and mounted a 120mm computer fan on it it moves some air!
