Default Greelee punches and items for electric brewery build

I just ordered my 50A back to back system and was about to order the Geenlee punches and all that but decided before i hit the buy button on Amazon I would see if any others on here may have them laying around that they do not use. Id rather help out a brewer and lil guy than a larger corporation.
if you have any/all shoot me a message radiant.designer at gmail

Instead of a Greenlee punch, I bought a Klein Tools 1/2" knockout punch. It makes 7/8" holes, perfect for the usual 22mm buttons and switches. Only cost me 30 bucks. I think the Greenlee punches, while being quality tools, are not the only tools that can do the job.

Very true. I have used greenlee for a tap tower and thought they did an amazing job. The panel im getting assembled so I need the few for ketles.

Heh! Triclover fittings on a tower! I don't know if most of your friends will understand just how beer-geeky that is, but I certainly appreciate it!

Im glad someone does, it wasnt cheap! But I like that I can easily take the whole thing apart to change it, clean it, or do whatever I need to, plus the few brewer friends I have got super excited to see it.

Well worth showing off!

I'm also in the market for a 1/2" conduit punch (7/8" hole size), by the way. @LoL Thanks for the heads up about Klein.

Edit: got a 2nd hand Greenlee from ebay.

Commercial multi-tap towers aren't much (if any) cheaper... plus I love the idea of the tri-clamp ability to customize the size/style. You want more taps - just add on an extension pipe or two. You want a really long line of taps - just do two vertical pipes and elbows with a length in-between.

Yeah originally I wa ted to do an upside down U shape but in the interest of getting it done in time for my birthday decided 2 Ts so I dodnt have to worry about the center size.

Hmm I have several conduit punches, thats what I actually used them for the tap tower. Kal at electric brewery states to use radio or something else and not conduit.

Isn't it a 1" conduit punch OR 1 1/4" chassis punch for the elements ?
I think they both make a 1 1/4" hole.

Edit* your tower is bad ass.

Sounds like it would be very easy to do a forced air cooling of the tower with a small fan once at this point
