  • 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.

    Creating a Sonic Bang.

    Just for Fun.
    I can think of 2 occasions where an engineer can create a sonic bang!
    1 using a refrigerant and the other using another medium.

    I would have thought trap outside with provision to clean it in accessible location as well.
    Good fall on pipe also helps.
    Make sure pipe
