    I am wondering how to make sure that the wafer thermostat is adjusted right in a cabinet incubator with an electronic thermostat? Anyone know? Thanks

    The wafer is supposed to be set at 102 so the bator won't go above that. YOu turn the digital up all the way and then fine tune the wafer to shut off at 102. I myself didn't care for the digital therm because of the swings in temps where I have my bator so I use my digital as the backup and the wafer to maintain 99.5-100. Hop this helps.
