"If you bang your head on any market issues let me know, glad to either row with you or maybe explain some ideas around them. 4 years taught us more than I'd ever like to know. ;) If there is a will there's a way; you have a great product…"

"andy - thanks for the thorough explanation. i see that it is quite a process, but you're really thought it through (and probably learned a lot by doing/mistakes/what ifs). DFM does have electricity, so that might help somewhat. though we'd…"

"Oh yea and my knowledge is for those who do not have permanent vending. We've had to vend at day or partial day mainly outdoor with rarely electric. Change the scope to something more friendly and the solutions change."

"Casey! Davidson market, sounds like fun. It's always been way too far for us to travel but it's a nice market! Again there is no perfect solution. Everything has tolerance and associated costs. When outdoors you have ambient temps and…"

"LOL  Well at least I know I'm thinking in the right line here- I just spent a few days looking into various Coleman and Koolatron coolers and a few cheap wine coolers.  Even took a trip today to the local Restaurant Supply shop to…"

"Carlos - Did you see these? Twine. it wouldn't take much to use the built-in temperature sensor to build an on-off switch to keep the temp regulated within very narrow limits, especially when the units are DC powered. :: Clay"

"I've been toying with the idea of cannibalizing a small wine cooler for the TE guts.  Something like a Vinotemp or Cuisinart in the 20-30 bottle range.  Why?  Because of the thermostatic control.  Most come with a very nice…"

"Roy - Cheebs talks about cannibalizing a used portable thermoelectric cooler he found. Here's a new one on Amazon that could be sacrificed. Brands to look for include Coleman, Engel, Koolatron - you can probably cannibalize any of those…"

"True.  Funny how there are so many HEATING small display cases but none of what we need out there.  Did you get the TE AC unit from a company or from ebay searches?  Any advice on what to search on or where to go?   Thanks again…"

"Oh don't bother with EIC their products are way too expensive.  And, they're wrong, the TE AC does work, I actually have  a 1000 btu unit in a larger display case (4 tier, 4 foot wide) but that one was $1700 -- ouch!  Still…"

"Yeah...I  just got a quote for the thermoelectric cooler unit from the link... Ouch.  AAC-120-4XT thermoelectric air conditioner is $850.00  They flat out say it won't work...they swear up and down a refrigerant based solution is…"

"Roy, the trays are also custom-made.  Any decent plexiglas shop should be able to duplicate those no problem.  I also found these online, but boy are they pricey!"
