Default dual draft tower

Hello,
I just bought a used kegerator but I now need a dual draft tower so I can home 2 kegs of homebrew going at once. Does anyone on here have one for sale or can you tell me where to get the best prices. I am hoping I don't have to spend another $100 on one of these! thanks.

You will spend $100, these are not cheap I just installed mine
I got it from here. They where about $30-50 cheaper then everywhere else and still cheaper then plastic ones.

Or if you're feeling handy you can just add a second shank and faucet to the existing tower.

http://www.micromatic.com/search.asp...+shank&x=0&y=0

You'll need to drill a second hole, and probably adjust the mounting angle of the tower unless you don't mind the second tap sticking off to the side at a weird angle.

Micromatic sells everything you should need, you can probably get the job done cheaper than buying a new tower and stick with all stainless-steel instead of chrome if you want too.

I've been researching this myself. The only way you can get out with less that $100 is if you go with the chromed ABS plastic tower like suggested above. For about $20 more you can get a Stainless Steel tower from Keg Connection.

http://stores.kegconnection.com/Detail.bok?no=102

Plus, they allow you to customize as well, so you can add forward sealing faucets and homebrew disconnects. It adds to the cost, but definitely increases the value. This is the cheapest place I've found to land a SS tower with Perlick (forward sealing) faucets..only $180!

I was having the same debate with myself before I settled on just using picnic taps for now, and then when I have more cash I'll just buy the one that I really want with the proper taps.

I also remember reading something on here about making one yourself with a PVC tube and faucets. I can't remember who had that posting though. I'm sure you can find it in the DIY section.

I got mine from American Coffee and Urn. Brushed stainless 14" tower. Soooo pretty. It makes the rest of my kegerator look like a POS (which is pretty much is.

They do them custom and they're hot. And actually reasonably priced.

I started with a picnic faucet on mine. One keg at a time. Then SWMBO bought me a Tower for my B-day and I upgraded to 2 kegs on tap.
