Anyone know where I can buy a few pass-through shanks , like this one? Flat on both ends and fully threaded with no faucet crown?

Looking for a neat solution for putting some gas posts on the front of a keezer, these would be perfect if anyone local had some in stock.

These are 150mm (6") rather than the 100mm (4") you asked for. Good chance you could cut one in half and have 2 of 75mm (3") that might be long enough.
If you have any old Australian (Turret) gas pasts they have a 1/2" (12mm) BSP thread so a socket will join the two.
If you are handy enough you can cut the socket in half and join the two with a good quality liquid thread sealer

Whatever works for you - but I think you might upset Armstrong if you confuse "Country Trading Store" and "Country Brewer", they aren't the same at all.

I spent hours doing this same search over the last week. I want to put liquid posts on the side of my jockey box esky for a cleaner solution, ie. no cables hanging out when not in use. I went with brewmart as the ID is better for beer to pass through, although the country brewer (ebay link) ones are longer.

Thanks, that's perfect - the eBay ones will work great for me since I'm using them for gas.

Happy to help. The same seller appears to be on Amazon.com.au or even catch.com.au if those marketplaces suit better.

Country Trading Store on EBay. Ordered one last week turned up Tuesday, great service. Used mine to add a second gas line to my kegerator- I use a balllock post on the outside to connect my gas. It was a Krone brand which is the same as my earlier one but longer (I now have two).
Much better than making your own!
They do great all grain kits too!

Yeah, I tried cutting down a faucet shank but I wasn't happy with the resulting sealing surface. Could have cleaned it up but I needed several more and the idea didn't appeal.

I've ordered 4 for my keezer - 1 for gas in, and 3 to pass each of my regulator pressures through to ball-lock posts on the front panel so I can use a bottling gun or carbonation cap with the keezer sealed up (20kPa for the bottling gun, 85kPa / serving pressure for counter-pressure fills and keg transfers, 200kPa for force-carbing).

Technically I could tee the 200kPa line before it enters the keezer, but it'll look neater this way.
