    I made a missprissy bator out of a cooler. I had to Missprissy about wiring, I found out I'm not a [​IMG] electrician. I only trip my breakers 2X. [​IMG] [​IMG] But I got it with her help [​IMG] and all is working well. [​IMG] Thank you again Missprissy. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Not sure how to do the rest. [​IMG]

    What percent % does the humidity need to be ? [​IMG]

    What if it changes form when the light goes out due to the incabator reaching the temp.(it seems to go down some) [​IMG]

    Temp seems to go 89 to 99 degrees is that OK [​IMG]

    How do you turn them? side to side or tip to tip [​IMG]

    do you mark the egg each time you turn [​IMG]

    Thank you [​IMG]

    If you adjust the fan where its blowing the heat from the light directly on the flat side of the thermostat you should be able to get the temp way more stable. Turn side to side.

    turn side to side. put an "x" on one side and and "o" on the other and then alternate which letter you see on top each time you turn. If that makes sense... [​IMG]
