    It could be your thermostat. I switched from a hot water heater thermostat to a wafer. The hot water thermostat had a 5 degree temp range, the wafer gives much tighter regulation. It only varies by about a half a degree now.

    my bator is all home made, no thermostat, only thing i actually bought was the thermometer/hygrometer. Had a rubbermaid tub with lid, picture frame glass, duct tape, light bulb and egg carton lol
