    I'm looking at a Sears and Roebuck Incubator, 8 trays tall. It's in excellent condition, and had the thermostat and ?fan? replaced in February. He wants $300 and won't budge on the price. I know it's not a steal, but it is reasonable? I can't seem to find another one around here, so I don't want to bypass it, but also don't want to waste money.

    Any thoughts, folks?

    Thanks!

    Well, I just called him to say, "I'll take it." He said he and his wife decided to keep it. [​IMG] On goes the search.

    I wouldnt doubt it. But if he priced it to her for $300, then he should sale it to her.

    Its probably worth MORE than that. Do you know what operable antiques like that go for???
