Would you call this a "Stovie Fridge"?

The opinion of 10,000 men is of no value if none of them know anything about the subject.

It's a "stovie Torch" Use alcohol instead of water :mrgreen:

Wonder if the evaporation rate of alcohol could drop the temperature down to freezing :o The contents could be slush (trail slurppy)

this is exactly the same technology used ages ago to cool wine, or other beverages. the bottle was wrapped in cord, the cord soaked with water. as the water evaporated it sucked heat out of the contents.

when i'm out crab fishing i put a couple beers in the crab trap and lower it to the bottom. nice cold beer! :mrgreen:

I've seen this before but I can't remember when or where. The only thing that I remember it when the time I saw that thing is I am with my friends. I should better try to us this to my friends maybe they know something about this.

Articreel is what it reminds me of. Dunk it in water while you're out fishing and it will keep your catch cool till you get home.

I wonder if that metal fridge could be used as an oven if you soak it with alcohol? That would be some nice dual purpose kit.

Had plastic army surplus canteens when I was a kid, but Dad always hiked with his aluminum, Vietnam-era canteen with case. The lining of the case was ratty wool batting. I thought he was crazy when he made me soak the case before a hike one summer day, but I sure was amazed when we hit the trail and the water was cold! I think that trick would also work with the old, round 'prospector' canteens with the wool plaid coverings on each side.
Any road followed precisely to its end leads precisely nowhere. Climb the mountain just a little bit to test that it's a mountain. From the top of the mountain, you cannot see the mountain.
