    I'm trying really really hard to convince my Mr that I *need* to turn this into an incubator.

    Would make an awesome incubator, but I think I'm on your hubs side with this. (So sorry!) That thing is WAY too cool to convert.

    Then again, if it's just taking up storage space...

    Far to valuable to convert. That's from the forceful era when logo was Drink Coka-cola not Enjoy Coke (Have a Coke and a Smile). I've an old circular wall mount light with same logo. It's old, not as old as an all 10 oz bottle vending machine but a nice vintage item.

    It's a total rust-bucket inside. It will never run again short of finding another machine and hoping it's guts are still good. As it is, all it does is take up space in my very tiny dining room.
    It's actually the first model to vend cans!

    I just couldn't do it, no matter how much of a rust bucket it may be... That machine is too awesome.

    If he'd actually do something with it (restore it, clean it and put it on display, SOMETHING) my roving eye wouldn't have fallen this way. But it's been 4 years, and I'm getting tired of this useless hunk of memorabilia just sitting there.

    Then sell it like it is and then use the cash to buy a brooder...it just doesn't make sense to ruin an antique that someone could restore and enjoy

    I wish. He doesn't want to do that either.
