    I was fitting a drip tray to my keezer today and decided to screw and glue a timber plate on the front. Logic told me that between the outer body of the freezer and any cooling pipes there would be at least 20mm of insulation so I planned to use screws that would only penetrate by 5mm. On drilling the fourth pilot hole and had gone in about 2mm I hit a cooling pipe. Freezer knackered!
    Stupid me applying logic.

    Makes me thankful that my high-tech solution is an old newspaper on the floor.

    It’s a Logik that I bought from Curry’s, from memory it’s 140 litres, it holds two cornies and a couple of 5l mini kegs.

    I did a very similar thing to mine. Installed an stc1000 inside, taps,wheels got it all up and running perfect then added a couple of lockable clasps to hold the door closed which resulted in drilling straight through the cooling pipes!
