    [​IMG] Nice neat job. What is your other bator?

    You may want to check the temp in various locations within the bator before you set eggs. I would be a little concerned having the thermostat so close to the light. But it may work fine. [​IMG]

    Looks really nice.
    I would put the hardware cloth higher than the light, maybe even with the light base or a little higher. Also put your eggs to eithr side of the light on the hardware cloth. Directly above the light will be a bit of a hot spot. [​IMG]
