This guide is coming along nicely. Finished the first five posts for the time being. Added tutorials on how to read the spec sheets and layout drawings. Add a FAQ. Added instructions for how to request drawings for a new model. Etc etc.

Updated the 6 models that I have drawings for. The previous images were too small, so the new ones are about 5x the size. Also made all links clickable.

Everything's good to go. Was hoping to have models #7 and #8 posted by now, but this reformatting took up the time I had available to draw those out. Also, started my keezer build, the kegs arrive today, and I'm hoping to keg my first batch this evening. Exciting!

Thanks for stopping in, all. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave them here.

Looks great, keep up the good work. Not sure how often new freezer models come out, but you could consider reserving a few posts for models you aren't aware of or aren't out yet.

Hopefully they are retired at about the same speed as new models come out, in which case I'll create new posts for the retired ones and keep the new models in the first 30 posts. The links in the OP make it largely irrelevant anyway.

Thanks for reading!

Progress! Worked on the drawings for the 8.8cf Frigidaire today. I'm super not impressed. The extra depth is just enough to make it look like it holds a ton more than a 7.0cf model, but it really doesn't because the hump is so large. You can squeeze 6 ball locks in one, but it requires building a rather large hump extension platform. Mehhh.

Finished drawings for the Frigidaire 8.8cf LFFC09M5HW and posted them.

It's not a particularly impressive model for Cornys. The added depth makes it look like you can squeeze a ton of them in, but it just doesn't pan out that way. You can squeeze 7 if you don't mind using the hump, but it makes for an awkward 2 on the hump, 4 on the floor, 1 dangling over the hump configuration.

Where it really shines is as a fermentation chamber or a Sanke keg server.

It can hold 3 poly buckets, or 2 glass carboys and a poly bucket, or 2 Better Bottles and a poly bucket without a collar.

It's the smallest class I've seen that can hold a 1/2 barrel. You can even squeeze in a second 1/4 barrel on the hump without a collar or a second 1/2 barrel on the hump with a collar, plus two 5# CO2 in either configuration.

Lastly, you can fit either two 10-gallon ball locks and a poly bucket with no collar, or three 10-gallon ball locks with a collar.

Impressive thread! Thanks for doing all of the work to put this together. I just wanted to note that the GE 5.0cf can hold 4 ball lock kegs and a 5# CO2 tank (with a collar of course).
