    Hi guys.

    A friend over here in the UK has just started and he's found himself an interesting project.
    It's an old incubator that was originally heated by parrafin (kerosene to you guys I think.)
    It's labeled "Elite" by H.M.Best.

    Can anyone throw any light on this one?

    Thanks.

    I have never heard of it, did try google - maybe I do not have enough patience for it, but did not see anything on your incubator - sorry.

    I could not find anything on an incubator made by the "H.M. Best" company, but there is some general info on kerosene incubation to be found. Lehman's Hardware among others still sells new ones.
