  • 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.

    Scotland, Highlands, Inverness area.

    Very unlikely but, if anyone knows of any job vacancies in the Inverness area for hands-on engineering / mechanical roles I would be interested to know.
