I have both stainless FC Intertaps and Perlick. My advice is go FC Intertap on performance & price.

If they have a ring on the outside then you only need a c spanner or a faucet wrench

I think that another possibility could be king lock/snaplock/snaplok/fatlock fittings

that collar unscrews which releases a stainless socket that the beer line is attached to

Brewgasm is right. You'll first need some snaplok/taplok/fatlok/kinglok type adaptors for the font.
You then need male snaplok adaptors for the taps.

If you bought the font off eBay the same seller is probably selling them separately.

As far as I know all taps have the same standard at the back end, so I think that you can attach any tap to any shank. So I don't think that the font should effect your choice of tap. I have gen 1 intertaps and they are fine except the internal machining left a bit to be desired. I think that gen 2 intertaps have eliminated that flaw. I have also seen a really good Chinese knock off of perlik taps, they look similar without the P and they have the same screw in nozzle concept as intertap

I don't know much about fonts but you may need something like this http://www.andale.com.au/product/snaplok-adaptor/
That’s exactly what you need drewgong.
I’ve just put the same font , snaplocks & taps together

There’s a guy sells good quality 2nd hand snap locks & taps on eBay for half the price of Andale.
New Andale snaplocks were around $45 & brumby taps just over $100 from memory.

I was cruising the kegking website this morning trying to understand these things (I just have taps poking out of a fridge door) and I really like the look of the modular font system that they have
