Done some searching but haven't found much. Anyone know of a good:

1) Do it yourself site to build my own tap handle
2) Website to buy "original" tap handles (besides bevfactory, kegconnection, etc) I'd love a Virginia Tech one.

i was on ebay recently looking for tap handles they had some college handles. don't remember which ones. try there if you haven't already. i found that an old pool cue i had screwed on to my tap perfectly. looks kinda silly, but its fun until i find one that i really like.

Nice collection BSBrewer! What size is that decal in the middle? I've been looking for some blank ones to put some custom vinyl stickers in, but I don't want to get the stickers too large and have to cut off a logo.

Check these people out:

Theyre right down the road from me in Baltimore and it looks like they do amazing work. Ive been holding off in ordering just yet, but see their work all around town. I figured I would hold off until I get my Beverage Air outfitted for 10 lines before I got Tap Handles. Hope this helps.

Searched and found a couple of threads on DIY tap handles.

You can pretty much turn anything into a tap handle with a threaded insert. You can find them online or just at Home Depot. The part is 3/8"-16 UNC (Unified Coarse Thread).
