After doing some measuring and testing with cardboard I don't think the American spacer tool(the one pictured) will work on Australian boxes. The Australian boxes are 10mm narrower internally so the tool wont fit in. You can cut some off each end to make it fit and then the frames will be evenly spaced, but the 2 outside frames wont have even space against the side of the box.

Just let me throw this out for every one that does not know.   You need to use fully drawn frames for 9 frames in a 10 frame box.  If one puts new frames as 9 frames in a 10 frame box, there will be too much open bee space and you will get burr comb between the frames.

That doesn't seem to be the case for us, I always put 9 frames of new foundation if my 10 frame boxes. I would say this is because our boxes are that bit smaller.
