Lord I want one.  I am such an antique hound and I love refinishing restoring and getting old things to work...  I wish I could find one locally that I could afford to get.  I keep looking and hoping.  The few I have seen on ebay, the shipping alone would about triple the price.  Sigh.

I want one.  I want it... ohhhhhhhh I want it.  You've gone and awakened my envy...

kartking has one of these models. It's a really great looking unit. I just missed out on one local. They are nice units. He spent some time tracking down a manual for his.

I'm the type of person that likes to keep what they will never make again. These fit the bill.

We have friends who run an antique shop , visited them yesterday and they had amontgomery wards redwood incubator. I think it has 6 trays.Needs some wiring work but it  appears that everything else is in good shape . Got it for 50$ , they are delivering this week.

It has a plate that says it is a 75lz-3666b but I can find no information on that model # but was told that it was made  by Leahy.

Any info I can get would be greatly appreciated.

Hey this post was just what I needed to figure out the brand name model number of the antique cabinet incubator I picked up for FREE (Yes I said F-R-E-E!!!) last Fall. We're going to clean it up/re-store it, and see if it will hatch some peeps for us.  wink  smile

It's an awesome looking incubator, makes our Sportsman look shabby lol!

Do you have a copy of the operating manual at all? Mine is the model with 4 trays fits about 400 eggs I figure. measures: 22 x 35 x 39 H.

Model # 416?

The operating manual can be found online here:

Looks like mine is the 624 and I'm in love love

My thermostat shipped, should have it rolling for a first check at the end of the week.  Then I'll hit the brakes to resurface the outside.  It needs new varnish bad.

Yup, Got one of these too. Leahy model 624. It's a six tray manual turner vintage redwood top of the line bator. I sure love it. I believe that I bought it with everything original except for the instruction manual that I found earlier on leggs peafoul website. It will be coming up for sale shortly due to my recent investment in another vintage redwood bator with auto turn. A Humidaire model 200 that will hold up to 1400 eggs. I don't have to give eggs away anymore when the Leahy was full.
