with my converted cooler, I still had to keep & use one of the parts from the original drain assembly. needed the gasket to keep the conversion from leaking
The gasket was still sitting inside the cooler
There was actually a second cooler sitting there in the same shape. If I had a need for it, I would have grabbed it too.
And I've got a $110 7 ft freezer as my fermentation chamber. It was sitting in the discount area of Lowe's with a dent in a back corner. It was missing one of the hinge covers and I was attempting to knock a few more $$ off for that when SWMBO pulled a cover off the other dented freezer and stuck it on the one I was interested in.
I do have to give credit to SWMBO because she is an excellent shopper and we have a basement full of slightly dented canned goods from Kroger which she picks up from the scratch and dent section.
