My friend shop was out of the material, but Good news!!
I Found a local supplier for HDPE.

http://www.plasticareinc.com/ .

They were very inexpensive also. Enough material for 3 dividers (so I have a spare) for $15.

Milk crates are 13x13x10...
If you put little tabs on the edge they fit great in the basket tracks on bigger coolers and tend to be a bit deeper than the cooler specific baskets. Or they fit nicely in the base of the cooler and create dividers that are independent storage devices.

Pics in my Engel's 150+/-? Interior dimensions are pretty close to most of the similar sized coolers. I don't have fancy materials working skills so those tabs are just little squares of craft plywood I had lying around glued to the top with a deck screw holding them on. If you have skills you could probably weld plastic tabs or fancy brackets to the crate.

I make my own block ice to fit perfectly along the bottom and half gallon cartons fit perfectly in between the crates. If I need a little more ice but need a dry crate I line the bottom of one with [almost] frozen beer and pour bag ice in to fill all the cracks so dry things can be elevated.

This was a divider thread so the way I stumbled on this idea was I previously had a crappy Igloo that I made a divider for but I didn't like where the slot for it was so I just dropped the milk crate in and it created two dividers that I could shift around.
I also hoard milk crates so...
