Broken keg post
« on: March 07, 2019, 08:11:27 AM »
Yesterday the liquid post snaped off my keg.  Can it be welded back on or is it a lost cause? thanks

Not sure where the break occurred but you can buy new keg parts including new dip tubes, poppets and posts.

im probably not wording it correctly, its the inlet that is attached to the keg. The part you screw the fitting on to.

Yes, the threaded fitting can be welded back on.
