Patent 2,030,735 Issued Feb. 11, 1936, to Charles F. Belshaw and William J. La Casse, Duluth, Minn.

Ice-Cuber

The principal object of the invention is to form ice cubes in a block of ice in a relative short time by heated water in the tank and in turn the heated grid will melt the ice in the shape of cubes to be chipped off the block. Another objective of the design allows for an addition row of cubes, when subsequent operations are properly placed with the prior application.
