Here's some photos of my setup:

I used a pair of threaded hooks held in place with a small U-bolt. I used scrap wood to make the clamping bar. I had to glue a shorter piece in the middle to clear the side of the keg as my stock pot lid handle didn't stick up quite high enough. I use washers and wing nuts on top of the wood clamp bar.

The flange gasket I used was:
Part number: 8516T23
Buna-N Flange Gasket 8" Pipe Size, 8-5/8" ID, 11" OD
$7.94 per Pack (Sold in Packs of 2)

I went to the local kitchen store and found them. $17 isn't cheap per lid, but I got my two and I have mounted through-the-lid return on one of them.

I buy a plastic cutting board from walmart for $10.00 and cut it in a circle and put a handle on it.

Man, wish I saw this thread sooner. I bought mine just a week ago, actually traded 3 in that my daughters bought me for Xmas that were too big, at a restaurant supply store as well. I paid $8 and some change each. They fit perfect. Not as pretty as the more pricey ones but they do the job.

I bought these. They look to be the same as what Sabco sells but a lot cheaper ($15.99).

I just went and got a pizza pan from goodwill for $1 and bolted a wooden handle to it.
