Just been checking out the brewboard.
Seems a number of guys are still upgrading to Vent-matic taps.

One of the guys has also just got some really nice shiney chrome handles for his. Here is a pic


So what do you guys reckon, another bulk buy on chrome tap handles :lol:
Here is a link to the distributors webpage for them.

Beers,
Doc

PS: maybe I should have waited until everyone has transferred their money to Ken for the taps first :p

nice find Doc. Chrome tap handles would finish them off quite nicely. Tho a pity to spoil the SS taps with brass handles, albeit chrome plated. You would think that someone in Oz could supply these easy enuf.

working on it doc although production would be slow due to being done on the sly at work.

Depending on what people would like, handles with a flat top would be a lot cheaper to manufacture.

Well I could not wait till the taps arrived so I went over to Trough lolly house and borrowed his tap and made a Stainless steel handles for mine and one for Rowan. I think they look the nuts guts however a little on the heavy side, but with this design I dont think it will be a concern.
As you can see I have made the handles a little longer as I think that looks better (hope you think so Rowan)
