    I have a montgomery ward never-fail 3 draw incubator in my cellar. I have the manual also. The photo is a picture of the page that somewhat shows what it looks like (except book shows 2 drawer). The copyright of the book is 1928. This appears to operate from the lamp oil burner. Has anyone ever seen one as such? I've haven't found anything on the internet research wise. Just trying to see if there is any value for this?

    Would it be possible for you to scan your manual and email it to me as a PDF. I have been searching for instructions and have had no luck at all.

    This is an incubator made in 1903, it is called the "Sure Hatch", made by Sure Hatch Incubator Co, in Indianappolis, Ind. What I understand it is a very valuable museum piece, this company is no longer in business, and as far as know, the only way to inquire about this piece is throught an antique dealer or collector...
