    My companion has made me 2, one is out of plywood with a light bulb for heat, very hard to regulate the temp. and the second one he made me was out of an old refridgerator, the only problem we have with the large one is the electric thermostate wont hold a constant temp. it goes from 89 to 101, not good, so we are going to try a different thermostate, right now we are using a store bought one and I cant wait to get the big one going due to the fact that it can hold lots and lots of eggs.

    I know that there are alot of people that have made incubators out there and they are working fine, check out some of the other threads for ideas.

    Good luck
