    OK guys, the same question that everyone else asks... what would you recommend for a fan to circulate air. I was going to use a computer fan, but not sure how to hook it up, thought about a regular house fan placed on a dimmer switch, and then wasn't sure if I was to hook the fan up with the lights on the thermostat... BTW went to the pet store and bought a reptile thermostat.
    Can you folks give me some ideas, tell me what you think.
    Thank you in advance!

    you can use a pc fan in your momemade bator, all you have to do is take a old cell phone charger that has the same 12 volt output as the fan and wire it up and place it where the fan blows up and mount it in the top of bator, ( if you place it to where it blows down it will cool the eggs)
