did you want a faucet, or a tap?

Faucets come from the US. Taps are available pretty much anywhere else.

Have a read of this thread. These are not stainless, but flow control perlicks and they rock!

Mine (525ss) were from:
http://www.farmhousebrewingsupply.com/scri...p?idproduct=144

But it was quite some time ago, can't recall the details but they did arrive in reasonable time as advertised.

Does anyone have a wrench for tightening them? Like this


I find thumb tight is OK but they can slip if twisted, any aussie sources for a 'faucet wrench' (spanner wrench to fit standard shanks/taps)

Got mine from here: http://www.kegkits.com/Merchant2/merchant....;Category_Code=
Shared the postage/discount with someone else local.

Also check here: http://www.chicompany.net/
and here http://www.farmhousebrewingsupply.com/scri...p?idproduct=144 (make sure you add the extra 5% with these guys, since you're an International customer)

Yep, I got one with my taps, seems to work fine, but I don't take them apart much at all.

Picked mine up from "The Beer Tap Store" on ebay.
Grouping together with other gear will obviously save you some $$ on postage.

Great tap...good choice!!

I got mine from Kegworks in the U.S (www.kegworks.com). They were good people to deal with.

I have found chi company and farmhouse brewing supply to be the cheapest when you factor in shipping. They are pretty slow on the delivery.
