    We are finally ready to purchase a bator - the Brinsea we want is a little pricey, but we will get it if we can't find another reliable brand for less money. Our feed store sells Little Giant. Anyone have advice?

    I don't have problems with mine. I bought a wooden knob, drilled it out and glued to the red temp button. Makes it easier to adjust temp by little bits.. Then I bought a 7$ thermometer/hygrometer from wally world. Its digital and a lot more accurate than what comes with it... but I still use both anyways [​IMG]

    Skip the LG and get a Genesis Hovabator 1588.

    G has my one of my complete LG9200's. The styro is busted but the fan and turner are ok. Pay her to ship it to you and it's yours. Then all you need is the $42 9200.

    It's hard to regulate and tends toward temperature spikes, especially the still air one. You should get one with a fan, at least.
