+1 Cold plates are great for portable dispensing for a party but as Danaldor says the extra pressure necessary to push through that length of line makes it inappropriate for just keeping stuff on tap at home all the time.
If it were me I would go ahead and tear apart one and make a jockey box using a cooler. Personally I'd ice down the kegs also.
How are the cold plates attached to the stainless tubs?
One wonders if you could make a mash tun out of one and pump hot water through all the channels of the cold(hot) plate to maintain or raise the mash temp. Would require stirring the mash to get the heat uniform though, might not be worth it.
