Buckeye Fan Boards
I dont have any pictures of a
Buckeye Fan Board I can put on line
at this time. But we do have them
complete and we also got all the
parts that could be needed for repairs
on one, including hard to find Hinges
and the Spring Type Heating elements.
The 66 Incubators use a 1200 Watt
Heating element, Spring Type
or Calrod Type. I got both. Also some
of the OEM Torrington Aluminum Fan
Blades. Also the 8 Blade Multi-Wing
Blade that will almost double the
air flow inside the machine.
Some had a 1/3 HP Motor and some
had a 1/2 HP Motor. All were 220 volts.
A lot of these Redwood Machines are
still running. I know, because I sell
parts to them. One that is working
properly like it was designed to do,
will still hatch as good as any other
given the same flock eggs. I know
many of you wont believe it,
but it is true. Buckeye stopped building
the 66s in about 1956-1958 and went to
the Buckeye 140. Also a good machine.
There are several of them still running also.
Yes, I know, because they buy parts from me.
I have operated both of them and I think
the 66s would out hatch the 140s. The last
we ran here on this place were the 140s
with the 141 hatcher. The 140s weakest
link was its Boston Turner Transmission.
I still got enough parts to rebuild a few
more of those, but not to many more.
I'm 72 years old now in 2019. My Daddy
started hatching eggs when I was 5 years
old. I still remember the first hatch.
Many people from the community came
to see it. A wonderful time back then.
OK, guess enough reminessing,
back to work!
How in the world did we go from
Fan Boards to Ancient history?
