    I've built 2 of these bators so far. One with the hot water thermostat the other with the wafer. Both keep temps perfectly. Humidity is a breeze too.

    These instructions were super easy to follow. I really appreciate Wade's willingness to take phone calls for questions. I purchased a different brand thermostat from my local supply store. It had a plastic governor that was keeping the temp too high. I trimmed it down with a utility knife and was able to obtain a steady 99 degree temp.
    I am using a battery operated "camping" fan. (What I had on hand)
    I am also using a microfiber scrub cloth in a basin of water for humidity. (Again, what I already had available).
