    hmm, love the design

    it might need more insulation

    Can you add another layer of styrofoam around the outside or better yet, build a box around it? and put a wooden hinged door on it too, with the top attached to it.

    How cold is the room it is in?

    Is it hard to keep the top/now door tight?

    that is why I scrapped my water heater thermostat.......
    I ended up buying a reptile one and it works great...

    Oh youre using a water heat thermo? Those have been left behind. Yeah get rid of that - not enough resolution.
    Just spend the few bucks on regular wafer type or one of the reptile kind mentioned. Youll be a lot better off.

    Otherwise, looks great.

    Quote:GO to Double R supply and look under incubator parts. Its a wafer switch and wafer. Two parts.... Get a spare wafer.

    The reptile thing Im not sure of, but just google reptile thermostat and see what happens. And dont forget to try Ebay.
