    Thanks for the links. Well the incubator is humming away on its test run. I used an old computer fan and an old power drill adapter. I bought a hot water heater thermostat and wired it to the lamp base. [​IMG] keeping my finger crossed that the temp and humidity levels stabalize. How much air flow is this computer fan supposed to be moving? Sure does seem to be alot of air moving in there.

    I'm not sure (never built a bator, just read a lot of posts about it!) but I suspect you don't want the air to be blowing directly on to your eggs.
    I think that come hatch time this can cause them to dry out.
