Looking for a cold plate like what is used in a soda fountain.

I want to put one in my Fridge in the 60 so I can have a "portable" kegerator and still use it for food.

Does anybody have any old soda fountain equipment laying around? i know they are available new, but was thinking maybe I could save a few bucks...

something like this:

I built my own wort chiller out of 1/4" copper and it worked great. What if you serpentined soft copper in the bottom of the fridge and poked it out the side with some QD's?:beer:

I have a beer cooler I made out of 1/4" copper that I lay in a cooler full of ice but I am looking for a cold plate since it is going to go in my fridge. I am looking for something with some mass that will cool down in the fridge and stay cold-ish after a few pours. I think mass is key since it won't be submerged in ice water like my copper coil usually is..
