Default Uses for cut off keggle top and tube

I have the tops and downspouts to both my keggles and was wondering if there was anything useful to make out of these. I would hate to toss them to later find out I could have used them for something.

*shrug* the downspout long enough to use as a racking cane?


Are you a SCA geek? That top might make a nice buckler.

I'd never throw out a perfectly good 1" stainless pipe. You know what that'd cost you? No, I don't care if I never use it. It's in my scrap parts bin.

That's a good point. I guess I will lop off the tube and scrap the top. If I toss the whole thing I will regret it yet if I keep it I will never use it. Isn't that how it works....

I just got a plasma cutter and needed to practice before doing any actual cutting. Luckily I don't throw scraps out so I've got plenty of test material.

The top of a sanke would make a KILLER frizbee...

Don't just toss find a recycling center or scrap yard. The price of srap is at its highest. I just asked about a couple kegs at the scrap yard and they are going for about $50.00 and some change.

$50! Wow, I just saw some here for a buck a pound, which comes out in the $20-25 range.

As for the down spout, they make great stirrers for your kettle. Also, it make short work of that neighbor who keeps mooching beer! Wham - problem solved.

Anybody have an extra down spout? I have a neighbor that seriously needs it. I just found out he's been sneaking in my garage and filling pitchers. If there weren't so many cops in my area I'd kill him...
