  • Australias first fridge.

    This cooler was one of Australias first cabinet coolers.

    Can be used with coal out of a fire , line the inner wall
    with coals , wet them down , and sit your cooler in the
    breeze.

      Camping coolers use the same method today, with a water absorbent material on the outside covered with perforated aluminum and plastic inside,

      Good for keeping your beer cool Bruce.

    POE oil is hygroscopic substance. This is what I am worrying about. Have you checked it after blowing the system with air?
