    I am going to build a new incubator soon and I would like to include a digital thermostat if possible. Does anyone have any experience with them? Know where I could find one?

    I use a ranco controller. Works great. You have to do a little wiring but it's not hard at all. I found mine on eBay. Hope this helps.

    I purchased this thermostat and like it. It was easy to install. I had to get the first one I received replaced though because it wouldn't shut off. It had the temp of my bator up to 120 degrees. It ruined all my eggs in it at the time. They replaced it right away and the new one has worked perfectly. I have bought a few items from Incubator Warehouse and have been satisfied. They are quick with their customer service also.
