These are the ones I used:

one 01W8316 488mm SS Bar Handle (19-7/32")
two 01W8313 232mm SS Bar Handles (9-9/64")

As to where the kegs go:


The shelf in the bottom isn't very deep, it's just big enough for the CO2 tank. Another angle:
you rock. hey, so, where did you get all your equipment from?

I saved a space for a kegerator unit on the far right. I would like to cut the hole in the top of the fridge and bring the lines up through the top of the bar to a brass tower with two taps. Again.......someday.

Micromatic for the tower and regulator, Northern Brewer for most of everything else. Got a few odds and ends at Lowes and Radio Shack. Lee Valley for the rails. Kegs from Adventures in Homebrewing. The kegs were not rebuilt, just as-is old kegs, and they were a pain to get cleaned up. I'd recommend getting already rebuilt/refurbished kegs; it's actually cheaper considering you may need to replace parts on an as-is keg, and the cleanup work is already done for you.

Where did you guys get the dry erase board to replace the door panel? Everywhere I've checked online has ridiculous prices for something the right size.

I got a bigass sheet of Mark-R-Board wainscot at Lowes and had them cut it in the store to the right dimensions. I think the sheets are around $12. I got two door panels out of it, so I have a backup if I need it.

You can find the stuff back where wall paneling is. Guy at the store said the only people who ever seem to buy it are teachers.

Orpheus or anyone else who's done this conversion already - what size are the machine screws and tee nuts that you used?

I've got the fridge, and kegging stuff will be here Friday, so I went to Lowe's at lunch to get everything that I needed. I left out the screws and tee nuts because I wasn't sure what size to get. I'd imagine that it depends on the size of the holes in the tower, too so I'll probably just have to wait.

Couldn't one just use self-tapping screws and cut off the excess rather than predrill and use tee nuts?

Brewtus, I just used wood screws. I forget what size, maybe about an inch or inch and a half.

Depends on the size of the countersunk holes in the tower. My ACU stainless tower had smaller c'sunk holes, so I went with #10 stainless flatheads (countersunk design), and #10 stainless t-nuts, from West Marine. 1/4-20's would have stuck up in the c'sunk holes of the tower. They have a hardware section like a hardware store, with serve yourself single pieces. Was pretty cheap. I went long and cut them off flush with t-nut/board when assembled.

You don't need a lot of strength in the bolts- the pressure is minimal, but stainless is tough, too.
