    I have a David Bradley 6 tray (only have 4) manual turners. The heater works and fan works but I am missing the thermostat wafer. Can anyone tell me what wafer would work in this incubator? It also is missing the water tray but I can make that. I will get pics if I can fugure it out but it looks the same as RWD57 incubator under the thread (1950's David Bradley electric redwood cabinet incubator) started 1/26/10. From those pics it looks like I have everything but the wafer its self. Or will I have to replace the whole thermostat? Thanks for any help I might get.

    Nearly any common wafer should work in there. The David Bradley is virtually the same as the Sears Farm Master. I went and looked at that old thread and can tell you the water pan shown there is not the correct one. Here is a picture of the correct subdivided water pan. I have a copy of the Farm Master instruction manual on file and ready to attach to an email for you. PM me with your email address and I'll get a copy on its way.

    Here's a picture of the Farm Master controls. Shows the wafer in position with the work light, over temp buzzer, fuse, etc.[​IMG]

    could I please get pics of the wiring junction box in the front. Someone was suppose to fix my thermostat for me and ended up cutting the wires and moving them around so I am left trying to figure out how to rewire all the main box. Also I would greatly appreciate a copy of the manual. My email is [email protected]. to text pics my cell is 573-840-4434. I would so appreciate this help!!

    I just had this same incubator given to me, seems to be in good working order. I do not have a manual however, if you still are sending them out I would greatly appreciate it. Send to [email protected]. thank you! We are excited to try this out.
