    Just bought a double tap Kegerator and thinking I need to upgrade it to 3 taps
    I havent even gotten around to building the fridge but was thinking I could just buy a third tap and drill a third hole in the faucet, has anyone else done this?
    Cant see it being an issue but cant find any posts on it

    This will work. I would use a stepped drill bit, easily the best tool for cutting larger holes in stainless.

    You could also just replace the font if you dont already have the tool to drill the hole and cant be stuffed muckign around with it. They are about $35 I think.

    New font would be better, drilling a third hole won't leave much room underneath for a glass.

    i drilled mine, works fine with glass under middle tap. just use a pin punch and pilot drill the hole, i made a thread on here about adding an extra tap this year, search for that for measurements.

    Thanks for ll the responses to this post!
    I could buy a 3 tap font but its $40 delivered and then the hastle of selling my old one, easier just to whip out the drill
    The image attached in the link looks great, Im thinking there would probably be no negative effect drilling it 20mm higher

    Ive seen these font extensions on the net but can't justify the price. Cheaper to just upgrade to a 3 tap font or drill another hole. Screenshot_20181129-095158_Samsung%20Internet.jpeg
