I have been thinking about making an incubator for a while, with lots of ideas running through my head. Had a new one and I wanted to get an opinion from the experts on here. I really like the plans and idea for building an incubator out of an old wine cooler. That is what Im hoping for, but so far I havent found one. Thought about using just a small desk top fridge, then realized the importance of the glass door to see thru. Decided that cutting a hole in the fridge door just wouldnt do. So keep looking and back to the drawing board. Then one day I am standing in front of the microwave and thought about how I can make that work. It has the see through door, and is a little smaller maybe and is wide instead of tall like the wine cooler. I used the one above my stove for measurements and came up with the following. The 30 egg flat like you buy at the store in 12 x 12 inches, and it fits in the microwave easily. So theoretically I could have one long layer of eggs, about 6 deep from front to back and say 10 rows wide. If I built it right I could make trays 3 eggs by 6 eggs and have them all rotate to automatically turn the eggs from side to side. Several small trays instead of large trays like the cooler, and they would rock side to side, like venetian blinds laid down. Id still like to use light bulbs for a heat source, probably have to insulate the whole thing, and use 2 computer fans. Still working on getting a reasonable thermostat. Just not sure how to put everything together. Might have to take a microwave apart to get a better idea. So the question(s): Any one ever thought of this before? Ever actually try using a microwave as a frame? Some one see problems or ideas I dont? Thanks a lot for your time and input. Spring and all those eggs will soon be here, and I need to get started now, or I wont have anything. I'll try to get a diagram for it.
