My buddy used one of these. He replaced the glass with a whiteboard, and then pinned the lines neatly to the side and door so they weren't in the way. Very nice set up.

If a conical can fit in there, I think its highest best use is a fermentation chamber. Let us know if you do get it working. My old keezer would have cost too much to fix so I had to scrap and rebuild.

Additional benefit of premium regulators (Micromatic, Cornelius & Norgren) is that you can buy rebuild kits for them if needed.

Ditto - check valves on both! I keep the CO2 outside the fridge and the distribution block inside. I use clear lines on the CO2 so that I can visually see if there was ever any kick-back.

My nostalgic went out so looked around for something to replace with and found this Beverage Air UR30GE.. best thing is the air circulating fan that keeps my tower ice cold. Worst is the noise since its a little louder than the nostalgic. Still happy with the price of $100 for it off of the classifieds!! I use my deep knockout punch on it for the tower.. Easy and painless in less then and hour!! Working like a charm

Taprite also has rebuild kits and if you email them with a problem they will usually send a kit for free. There is really no reason to spend the extra cash on a "premium" regulator. They all have rebuild kits and a cheap check valve will prevent most common problems.

I would add Taprite to the premium regulator category - should have had them in the named list I had above. There are so many cheap Chinese regulators out there now (as generics and house brands) that have inferior quality, soft metals and no parts. Taprite, like the others I listed above, stand behind the product and supply parts should you need to repair it.
