    I was at Goodwill the other day and wandered in to the electronics section. I noticed some guys in the back taking used computers apart. Then I noticed a shelf with these parts all laid out. I spotted several computer fans and immediately began to think about incubators and that a person could probably find a lot of stuff to make an inexpensive homemade incubator. So, if you are thinking about making one yourself, check out Miss Prissy's and other's threads on making a bator and then head off to Goodwill or Salvation army.

    A hommead incubator is among one of my projects for the near future. Thanks for the idea!

    [​IMG] I live in a rural area and we have a recycling center. When you drive in there are places for old PC's and furniture. I get all of my fans and lamps there. I have also got a few hot water thermostats there also. The neat thing is they are all free.
