    Try dropping these folks a note, maybe they have some images in their archives.

    Hope it helps. I've pretty much hit a brick wall researching that company. Good Luck!

    Does this help? I believe we may have the same incubator you're trying to refurb. [​IMG]

    I have an old 500 Egg Incubator made by the Automatic Incubator Company out of Delaware Ohio. I have been trying to find out what it may be worth. It was in the attic of an old house I bought in southern Illinois. It is in great shape, and has all parts, including all of the kerosene heating parts and the manuals. Does anyone know who I can contact about this? I have tried the National Poultry Museum in Kansas, as well as the Delaware OH Hist. Society with no luck.

    thank you
    Jeff
