I've been wanting to get a large sportsman incubator. But they cost too much and I am too cheap. I was going to ask if anyone knew of a site or a place to get a incubator kit. One that I can put together myself. I hate them dang foam one's. Let me know of any sites or something that can tell me how to build a big one. Thank you.

Quote:Echostat, in the UK, sells kits and plans. Well they did. You'd have to ask them about shipping.

On the other hand, making an incubator from plans and advice here is easy and fun.

Ok, search the forums with the term *homemade incubator*, without the asterisks.

That should keep you in ideas for a while

LOL I'm with ya!

Figured if I bought every darn piece of those incubator parts and slap on some wood frames, it would come out almost about 100 dollar difference depending how you want it done and set up etc.

I surf the Ebay for old incubators and scrap it for parts if they would just send me the parts and not the box. However I have not yet seen one yet.

Shipping from UK is pretty expensive!

if you're willing you can cobble together enough 'stuff' and build a bator any size you want. Think it through and make sure your heat source is going to be big enough to maintain the heat in the box you use/build.

If some one will give me the dimensions of everything for the sportsman I will draw up some plans on Cad. I think we could build one for around $150.00- $175.00+ turner. make some improvements also. Just give me some ideas.
