    My take on the Kegerator Tower cooler

    I have made the popular DIY tower cooler seen on HBT in the past using a computer fan, RadioShack box, hole saw, and pipe fittings and it works very well but I always thought there must be a better & cheaper way to do this. Recently purchased a 3D printer to feed my creative side and quickly...
