I see a lot of reference to using PC Fans for the Keg Boxes. While I don’t understand why, unless it’s because you just happen to have a couple laying round…. For those of you who, like me, don’t keep junk laying around. I would recommend using a 115/120 volt fan. I like Mechatronics http://www.mechatronicsinc.com – nice aluminum fans, with ball bearings. the other nice thing about these fans is their air movement ability – they are rated at 106 CFM, and they are relatively quite 38dbu.
One last reason to use the 115/120 version. The PC Fans require a transformer (means heat) to step the voltage down to 12V. Why would you want to add more heat??
The UF12A12-BTHR is the fan I use, Radar sells them for about $17 each.
While your at it, Mechatronics also has accessories like filters and finger guards, for pretty cheap.
I really like your site, and have borrowed several ideas from it. (thank you!)
I am building a “MAN CAVE” – however my room is only 250 sq ft. Due to the size constraints of the room I need to reduce and modify your plans – for the L shaped bar with Kegerator – by the way, your idea and plans of incorporating a mini fridge is nothing less that brilliant. That in itself was worth the price of membership.
We play poker every single Friday night without fail. Again, due to the size of the room, I really don’t want an 84″x44″ table taking up precious real estate the other six days of the week. I think the best way to handle it is to put a 24″ leaf in the middle of it.
I am also thinking it would be cool to build a “lift kit” for the rails, so that when we are not using the table for cards, we can put a 4″ lift kit in, and use it for dice.
And finally, the ability to add an oval insert to convert the table for holding chips, dips, and BBQ when we are watching the game.
The object here, is that everything needs to be modular, so that we don’t have to number the pieces, and storage is simple.
Anyone got any ideas?
