Antique Incubators?

I once seen an antique incubator that was heated from burning oil lamps. Id love to find me one and tinker around with it. Have you ever seen them novelty spin wheels that turns from the heat of a tea candle. I was thinking that if you could rig up an antique incubator with a fan like that you could have a form of forced air incubation. Wouldn't that be kewl! My mind races way to much,lol.

Re: Antique Incubators?

I think the best designed antique incubator is called the broody hen :P

For Christmas I was looking in Lee Valley catalogue (not sure if that is a Canadian thing) and they have little models of steam engines and such that run on a hot or cold (I guess it is the temperature differential).

I have to admit though most of that is out of my league, married to an engineer though so I let him worry about that stuff.

PG is being *bad* this morning...she mentioned Lee Valley! (slippery slope time) :thumbsup: They do have a strong US presence via mail-order...

They are one of my absolute favorite companies to do business with! Fair warning, though - they have so much cool stuff you just might end up having to have your paycheck direct-deposited there instead of at your bank! :doI?:

My husband raised birds when he was a kid and he tells me that his first incubator ran on kerosene. The heater was fueled by keosene and it had a flapper that opened and closed. He says it worked very well.

Some of us are driven by the need to make animals a part of our lives. We are soothed by their presence, fascinated by their behavior, and amused by their antics.

Re: Antique Incubators?

I would also be interested in one of these but could you use oil to burn instead of kerosene? I do not know how to make kerosene but can make oils. Need a bator that I can provide all fuels for operation.
