Hi there is a similar model to this (manufactured by 'Blow' Churn Co and also a model with covering on the gears.) at the Illawarra Museum


A similar design but with visible gears is at the Tweed River Regional Museum, and mentioned in a post from Migration Heritage Centre written by Joanna Boileau.
