I'm starting to think that i've been getting ripped off when buying Corny keg rebuild kits.

Went to andale the other day to buy some gear, and saw they sold seals and some parts for corny kegs. The stuff i got was

poppet valves - 94c
post seals - 20c
lid ring - $2.50

That's cheaper than buying from the US!

Yeah, Lindsay is a top bloke. The only reason I'm not there every weekend is the distance from me :(

Is this at cooparoo? I need some new seals, sounds like a perfect opportunity to go for a drive and visit this place.

That's $0.72 CENTS US for poppets. Please let me know where he is getting them. That is 3 times LESS than our wholesale cost here in the U.S. Buy as many from him as you can, this may be a loss leader for him. Matt.

I just went down and got myself a stack at that price, thanks jgriffin. ALSO picked myself up a super drip tray for my fridge, 40CM wide and huge splash back - $90.00 inc GST

I made to Andale just as they had closed up (still short of their 4:30 closing time though) but got in to see the bloke behind the counter anyway. They were a bit short on Corny fittings though - I got their last lid o-ring, picked up a dozen post seals (have heaps of those left) and 20 poppets.
The 'pooter had been shut down for the day, but I was charged a dollar each for the poppets, $2.50 for the oring, and 20c for the post seals. There was still around 30 or 40 poppets left after I was done. Unfortunatley they do not carry/cannot get new posts, as I have a couple of dodgy ones that need replacing that would have been good.

I'm sure Lindsay would be able to sell you whatever QTY you wanted, they have them in a big pack and just take out what you want.
Give him a ring and find out.
