Default Looking to convert the old college fridge.

Any suggestions on where to find a 5 gallon keg and co2 tank, hoses regulator etc.. to put in a converted mini fridge?

Ive seen some used materials on sites, curious if they are reliable. Also, curious where and how much it costs to refill co2.

I'd try Craigslist as a first attempt for both. Refills seem to depend on your area and where you go. Gas companies (welding suppliers, etc) seem the most expensive. I paid $13 to fill my 5# cylinder.. forget what I paid for my 20#er. But, the least expensive in my area.. by FAR, was a fire extinguisher company. They can also recert tanks that are out of date.
Cheers, Bill

You can find kegs and co2 tanks on eBay. Going rate for used ball lock corny kegs is $50-$60. A bit cheaper for pin lock kegs.
