Can anyone recommend a place to buy an elbow shank for a keg tower? I was going to buy from beveragefactory.com, but I thought I remembered people having a lot of problems with them. Any suggestions?

Kegconnection is a great place.

And if you just need a tailpiece or something, Austin Homebrew has them too.

Brewmasters Warehouse has them as well, and discounts for HBT members. I got all my kegging equipment there, and get all my homebrew supplies there as well. Their flat rate shipping and prices are pretty much the best overall.

I got mine from micromatic and they're great. I can't speak for others as I just don't know but micromatic's elbow barb is welded - one less place to leak

I got mine from Micromatic too - 2 stainless tower shanks.
They shipped REALLY fast. Otherwise, a shank is a shank. I'm pretty sure they all come from the same factory anyway

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!
