the best thing to do is to convert it to electric by putting a dull emmiter bulb in the chimmny instead of the wick and then set it to run controling it the same way as if on parafin they are great incubators

hi there I'm Nicky

i have come across this post while searching for an instruction manual for an old glevum incubator. I am really excited, as i have been given one by an old farmer, and would love to to restore her to her former glory using paraffin, not converting her. Any help would be gratefully received!!
