    We are going to see a lady about a 600 egg old oak incubator on Saturday.
    How much damage can we do with this? Really?
    Last used 5 years ago and only $100.
    Gotta go see it at least, right?

    my experience, is if it is advertised, it's not going to last until this weekend, unless it's in rough shape. maybe in your area it will be different, but if it were me, i'd be in my car and on the way [​IMG]

    Quote:are you back with it yet?

    It is probably not oak.. It is probably redwood or cedar..

    what is the make and model ?

    If you are handy at all, incubators are very easy to restore..

    at $100.oo I would buy it sight unseen and over the phone..

    She just left a message that she can't meet us til Monday. That's ok... she's keeping it for us. Can't be that bad condition because she is located now in a nice part of town. She wouldn't have moved an ugly thing:) She didn't know the model, but I've been researching a bit. I think we may have a new living room piece. We use milk cans for end tables:)
    And yeppers, I have all the refinishing stuff!

    Now, if I could only find a new dog like I want on Craiglist!
