    I have a Little Giant 9300. I was clumsy and broke the bottom (base). Anyone know where I can get another base? I was just online with the manufacturer and did not see one. I called but with the holidays got no answer. I will need one soon, Any suggestions?

    Tape it up.
    I doubt you can find a base unless it is on ebay.

    Yeah I wish I could. I was cleaning up and dropped a yard ornament on it. Pieces everywhere. Stupid huh. I was just in a hurry. Had it at the wrong place wrong time. Thanks though. I will keep searching.

    I actually had a severely damaged LG styro incubator that wasn't usable but I used water putty to do repairs and fill in all the gaps.
    However, I guess if the Styrofoam shatters, there's nothing that can be done.

    You might try putting a wanted add on CL. I've bought three LG stryobators off my local listings, all for decent prices.

I FOUND TWO PLACES,IN YAHOO SEARCH I PUT (BOTTOM FOR LITTLE GIANT INCUBATORS They are about $12.00 ea www.ogpbb.com/little-giant --incubators/little-giantincubator.htlm 2nd one www.twincitypoultrysupplies.com/store/index.php ?

    I'm sure miller will have one,their customer service # is 1- 800-260-0888. Incubator warehouse says they have most every part.I found two places that sell tops for $16.00. and one company that sells bottoms for hovabators, they only run 15.00. Miller will have it,they make them there.a lot of places have plastic trays to put in bottom, might pick up one of those
