Thanks, I say his posting on Craigslist. Do you have any experience in dealing with this business? They have a lot of positive reviews, I was just curious and anxious to get my keezer built.

Fred McEver has great condition ball locks for $40 + shipping, pin locks are $29. I just bought a pallet of them for a group buy. Shipping is from Florida so it may not be worth it to buy just a couple.

I've gotten some kegs from Scot (face book guy) he is a good guy. He rebuilds the kegs and cleans them so that is an added savings. Just because he dose so many I'd check the keg to makes sure everything is there.

That's where I got mine. I got my ball locks for about $28/each last year. Used ball locks seem to be drying up. Wished I had bought more when I got mine.

I have called, emailed and tried bidding on ebay with no response from McEver. Anyone have an idea why they are unresponsive? I am getting ready to purchase elsewhere for more money due to their lack of response.
