      So there I was surfing Craigslist the other day when I came across and add for ‘Beer Dispensers’. I had to look. Sure enough 2 used chrome draft towers, so I called them up offered 100 bucks for both towers. He accepted, and with my deal I also got 4 tap handles and a drain. So my question is as far as refurbishing this, what all should I replace? I was planning on running new liquid lines for sure and running beer line cleaner and hot water through everything. But should I buy new faucets? even 19 bucks a pop for the cheap ones would rival the price on the whole set. Suggestions?

      The first thing you should replace is those tap handles! You dobn’t want anyone thinking you’re serving training beers!:laugh:

      AMEN :-d

      you might be able to seel those handles on Ebay.
      that might pay for a Faucet or two. if you decide to buy new.But if not then.
      Boil the Faucet parts after you break them down.
      pull the shanks out and clean them as well.
      you are pretty much going to have to do what is refered to as a “Frame off” restoration.
      BKF (bar keepers friend) or Zood and a wad of tripple ott ss steel wool should clean up the Towers pretty well. new handles and wha la. good and good can get.
      hook up beer lines, run star san or line cleaner through lines.
      and proceed with consumption.
      :hh
