    ok so im trying to build a second incubator. and would like to be able to use a thermostat i have to regulate the temp..
    it is a furnance thermostat. i hooked it up and turned it up to the highst it would go im only geting 97deg out of it.. is there a way to bump this up a bit??

    this is the little thing ive got.



    if i have to i'll go get another hot water heater thermostat..(any ways to make these more accurate??) the best i can get is a flux from 100 to 95. which seems to be growing chicks just fine but i figure more accurate would be even better right.
