If you are iffy about making an incubator, "Don't Do It." I didn't have experience with making incubators, but I decided I wanted to make a cooler incubator, and it has taken me a year to get it where I want it. (It didn't take me a year to build it). I just mean that it's been a year since I have decided to make my last updates, and remodeling to it. I am VERY happy with it now.
I have a page on my Cooler incubator if you would like to see it.
In the process of learning how to build this incubator I looked EVERYWHERE for instructions, wiring diagrams and other things to make my cooler bator a successful incubator.
If you don't have the drive to want to do this, just buy an incubator. I am saying this, because people think making the incubator will be fast, and cheap.
I enjoy helping people specifically with homemade incubators, but some people don't like to help themselves.
If you are all in with making a home made incubator get back with me, (a PM will do fine)
If you are on the fence, with the homemade incubator idea, then I recommend to buy the new 2012 Circulated Air DIGITAL Genesis Hovabator, with the egg turner.
DO NOT,I REPEAT "DO NOT BUY THE LITTLE GIANT INCUBATOR". The hovabator is a little pricey compared to the Little Giant, but SO worth it.
I may seem to be putting the Little Giant incubator down, but I have had 3 of these incubators, Mainly because this type of incubator was the only one available to me at the time. I haven't used my little giant incubator since I built my cooler incubator, and my Fridge incubator. I have no need for it. I am going to add a wafer thermostat to my little giant incubator though. I am just waiting for the money. Hopefully I can at least loan this incubator to my friend when he has a need for it.
