    the only way to make it as cold as possible is to take the thermostat off or maybe put the temp probe on the bottom of the compressor to fool it
    Thats a nice looking comprossor looks like a 3/4 hp com

    ya ok i finally had time to mess with it today.
    i turn it on for bout 3-5 minutes then the compressor turns on and everything becomes cooler....then after about another 5-6minuts of it being on the cap tubes gets nice and frosty...but after it gets frosty the frost starts going away then theres no frost but its still kickin out cold air...any one got an idea why it would go away?

    Because you didn't saw off the front motor shaft, which powers the evaporator fan, yet. Saw it off and remove the evaporator fan.

    What are the dimensions of the evaporator?

    I'm almost afraid to ask for pictures, but I don't care what the compressor looks like. I want to see the evaporator.

    -26c is around what mine got to exposed like that. once you submerge the evap in a liquid like alcohol the temp will drop a lot more. mine got down to -42.7c. looks good bud, keep us posted.

    What i do is remove the thermostat completely. the power switch feeds thru the thermostat to the compressor, if you remove the thermostat and go directly to the switch the comp will only go off
    when you trun it off. i've had no problems running them 24/7
    once it gets to its lowest temp the comp seems to quiet down a little and get cool to the touch.

    Check this out:

    http://www.usplastic.com

    Click on "rubbermaid". Click on "insulated coolers". Click on "12 can insulated cooler".

    I wonder if the evaporator would fit into the 12 can cooler.

    i think his evap is to long since his evap is around 14.6 and the tank is 14.59 wide it might be a tight fit

    gary, thank you sooooooooooo much, i was looking for a cooler, but now that you stumbled upon this, and it is quite a nice size! I'm in the same situation. Would u recommend that you put a barb on the bottom to take the water out?
