    I'v always rased day old birds but when I got my new place it came with a huge redwood incubator it is 5'x5'x3',and it is a James MFG CO. model number 2940k.
    Any info on this machine would be awsome.
    Also did a google and nothing showed up.
    Can I get parts for it?(where web or number)
    Should I try to fix it waffer or rebuild it?
    Trays are all there and 4 need to be rebuilt,it has ben sitting outsdie under cover for a few years so does need some work,but hoping to fix(rebuild)it for under500 bucks to end up with a really nice incubator.
    Also looks like one side is set up for the incubator and the othe side for the hatcher,about half the trays have a egg rack the other's not so not sure if one side is incabator with the other side being hatcher?also what are the two top doors for?
    You can tell I'm relly new to incubators and just found this site.
    thanks
    Todd

    edited to add, this company purchased James MFG, and moved their facility to Canada. They have contact information on their web site. Sounds like you may have won the incubator lottery. Please show us a picture when you can.

    Thanks,but it does need lots of work,but my thinking is the shell is good and to re-build it I'll end up with a really good machine.I'll take some pic's tomorrow if the storm calms down,been a good one here in E TX, the last few hours.
