Looking at the way the post threaded onto the green piece in the recent pic, I recommend using the original build with rhe A176 adapter...

Cheers!

Here's my version, setup for pin-lock kegs.

I followed the examples previously given and cut off the nozzle end of the sprayer. I trimmed the shape down with a razor blade so that it was more cylindrical than cone shaped. I tried to force it on and use the pin-lock post to thread it without success.

Used taps to figure the pin-lock post was threaded 9/16x18 inside, so I trimmed the nozzle down to a little proud of 13mm by threading the nozzle onto a 5/8x11 tap and mounting the whole thing in a drill press. A mill file a few minutes later I had it trued up and "turned" down to 13mm+ and was able to use the correct die to cut 9/16x18 threads.



A little teflon tape and ready to clean.



The moral of the story, if you can't get the forced-threading to work, find a friend with a SAE tap set.

Ok, so I've assembled just like I've seen on here. Flo master, minus the small green part, minus the clear plastic piece, brass adapter so I can thread my ball lock fitting on.

If I pressurize it over the sink, the spring sits and even if I hit the trigger, I get nothing coming out.

So I hook it up to my kegerator knowing that the interior portion of the fitting has a small piece to press in that spring. Still nothing. I can pump and pump and have plenty of pressure but the trigger won't do anything. The tap is open so it's not back pressure.

What am I doing wrong here? All of the components are new and should be functioning. Any help is appreciated.

Remove the beer line quick disconnect and press the post poppet in with something pointy. You should get wet. If not, something's plugged up the works.

If you left out the little plastic insert, there is no trigger function...

Cheers!

Ah crap. No longer available. I knew I should have picked one up when they were in stock 1-2 months ago.

Anyone know somewhere else in Canada to get this?

I was living in Canada (Alberta) when I built mine (last year). Homedepot.ca never even showed the item as available. I went to two different home depots and managed to find a bunch on the shelf. I can't remember if I asked them to check the in-store inventory system for the US part number or not. If you have a HD near by it is definitely worth checking the store for one.

Thanks! I've been to a couple and without the SKU, it's hard to find/hard to have them help me. It was listed on their Canadian website a month or so ago... I just forgot to print out the sheet to take with it with the product name/number so that they could look it up in their computers.

Anyone have the Home Depot Canada SKU?
