Too much to pay for a corny from the scrap yard?

let me know. i paid 5 bucks the time before, and mysteriously the scrap guys says the price has gone up.

Oh well, 10 is still a deal if they have the tops. If he has more than two is anyone else interested in one? I dont think i need three, seeing as how i had a guy I do business with get me three cornys for free from the pepsi bottler.

Lowest I've seen is $12 for used but that was a long time ago plus you have to contend with shipping in most cases. I typically paid about $80 for 4 shipped. My LHBS carries them for $35 each.

If it holds pressure then $10 is still a great deal.

I pay $20, but they have all the parts and I know they hold pressure. $10 seems ok as long as they have the tops and posts

$10 is a great price. Buy them all.

I just got back. He had two of them. One had a fairly good size wrinkle or crushed bottom corner, the second one was pretty good. So i offered them 10 for the one and i would take the lid and the posts and dip tube on the second. they said "ok".

I think it should be pretty good once i get It all cleaned up.

You did good with the lid posts and dip tubes. They often cost as mush as the whole damn thing if purchased separately.

Its in Omaha ale.

L and K or L and M i think it is. I head up there to do business fairly often, let me know if you are looking for one and i can pick it up for you. I went from one keg owned and one borrowed from a friend two weeks ago to 6 kegs owned and one borrowed (which i will be returning now) all for 15 bucks. I do not think i need anymore right now, but like anything else with this hobby, i imagine I will need about 6 more kegs in just as many months.
