    I made the mistake of reading to many threads in this sub-forum.

    Building from scratch, using good, but leftover material.

    24" w X 18" d X 30" h

    Got a waffer thermostat from a local feed and seed.

    110v fan from radio shack

    two porcelean light sockets, wire, and various supplies from local hardware.

    Should be ready for a test run Monday or Tuesday of next week.

    Also would like critique, on placement of fan, thermostat, lights. You know all the stuff that would make a sharp learning curve more gradual.

    I would love to help, and you are so lucky to have a retailer for wafer thermostats, if I need a new wafer, I have to order one. [​IMG]

    Check out my incubator for the placement of certain things. It's on my page, Look under Update on Fridge Incubator.
