    I was wondering where I can find some pics of a homemade bator made from a plastic cooler. [​IMG] And if you have any pics, please feel free to post! I'm trying to look at pics for a reference, because the stryo-bator's temp. is too hot in the bottom. Plastic should hold better and last longer. [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Gopher Boy Farms made a bator using a plastic chest-type cooler and they won the homemade bator contest. I'm surprised you didn't see it! She did a great job breaking down the directions, so it shouldn't be hard to follow.
