I did, but I think there may have been a crack in the tube, as it was the last tube on the shelf.

I made sure there was a hole in it, before I even loaded it into the gun.

Also, So since I put a skirt on it, the freezer lid is sitting back about 2 inches from the front of the lid, because of the wood. Well technically a half inch.

What I ended up doing was taking off the hinges and handle, and just placing the lid across the top.

The air inside becomes stratified, so that super cool air is on the bottom and the warmer air is on top. The fan pushes the warm air down and prevents the air from becoming stratified. There was actually a 7 degree difference where the lid was and at the bottom

The collar looks great. I'd like to do something similar for my keezer build. I saw the cherry stain, what type of wood did you use for the skirt?

Thanks!

I went with the Home Depot Pine. It was dirt cheap, and since it was sanded a bit nicer the stain came out way better.

Its a 1x12 board, and I believe for 8 feet it was like 6$

Just a heads up, the computer fan was not able to move enough air. So now I use a $6 4 inch single speed personal fan, and it keeps the lines and kegs from freezing, as well as keeping a much more stable temp inside.
