I will see if I can get some for you.

A couple of tips.

Taper the ends of the dowels. Makes it easier to get them in place.

Caulk and tape all of the joints for a good seal.

Put a floor in the chamber. The foam dents and tears easily. I used the stuff that looks like masonite with a shiny white surface on one side.

Use the round water bottles like these. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003QDANZK/...K&linkCode=asn

You can stack three high on each side to really get the temps low.

Here are some quick pics.

I did modify the original design slighlty. The whole top is not removable just the back part where the Ice goes is.

I did put mine on a base with wheels so that I can move it around easily.

I used a piece of PVC so I could run a blow off tube outside the chamber.

I use a digital thermometer taped to the side of the bucket to monitor temps. That is what you see on top of the chamber.

These water bottles stack easlily. If you cut off the bottom of a regular gallon water bottle. these bottle fit in that to catch any condensation.

Hope this helps.
