Theres an ad on Ebay for used ball lock soda kegs for $28.99 + the shipping if anyone's interested. Seemeed like a decent price. The ad says they've been cleaned out and pressure tested. I just ordered three and haven't gotten them yet so I can't speak for the quality yet. The shipping for me was 24 dollars from across the state. Heres the link.

Hmmm...shipping would add about $10 per keg to me up in North Chicago area...still seems like quite the deal at $39.07 each after shipping is factored in...still on the fence but might end up going with this...

Well i played with the qty and there is some break points that make it interesting:

1 keg = $40.32 shipping
7 kegs = $49.70 shipping ($7.10 each)
8 kegs = $67.75 shipping ($8.46 each)

Total for 7 to me would come out like $252.63 ($36.09)...hmmmm....

Another thread said to call direct for cheaper shipping with this guy as eBay shipping is sometimes exaggerated.

^ +1...

I sent them an e-mail and see what it comes out to...even at e-bay quote it would still be $9 less per keg the local (and still would have to add gasket kit to either one)...

Monitor Craigslist. I live in WA state and this guy runs this posting all year long.
