    Wow- what is that, from the 50's? Might be a great antique... does it run? Correction, does it run on the current electrical socket system? Looks cool.

    If you can afford it BUY IT !!

    It looks like it has auto turners..

    It also looks like a Jamaesway..

    It probably runs on 220V but that is a good thing..

    used they run around $2000.oo

    You do not have to tell, but how much are they asking for it?? I am guessing, Not much, as nobody has any plans to use it.. right?

    I wish I were closer I would give you a little competition..

    I can tell ou that each one of those trays sells for about $70.oo,,

    Quote:I would say a steal would be $500.oo to $700.oo..

    a good buy $700.oo to $1100.oo

    If it has auto turn..

    You can rig auto humidity in these very inexpensvely.. I mean for less than $20.oo.. I can show you how..

    sometimes they already have auto humidity, though..

    this is not the one from Ken and Jill, or is it??
