can a parts list be provided?
you asked for it!
you guys crack me up.....
so far I bought my wafer thermostat off ebay, I could go cheaper with that digital one, but I haven't a single issue with a wafer thermostat so I am sticking with it!
I have the 2 sockets (I use two lights so if one blows I don't loose them all)
and I have fans and converters!
fan cheap off ebay.
and I have some plexi
all I need is
A COOLER and some of the heat glue stuff, to glue sockets into place. I used it all.
I've used threaded sockets used in table lamps and porcelain sockets screwed in. I've used water heater thermostats, wafer, and digital (incubator warehouse $50 ones are nice). I've used 12 volt computer fans and 120volt cooling fans from radio shack. Besides that, some electrical wire (lampcord or romex, I prefer three wire), a plug and wire (old outdoor extension cord works well), and if you want it safe and neat, an electrical box and cover (I use 4 inch metal) a ground fault circuit breaker , the things to put writes into an electrical box, some silicone, sheets of plexiglass for the windows, assorted screws, a drill and assorted bits, a jigsaw, screwdrivers, probably a knife and wire stripers.
I'm sure I forgot something.
Edit to add: wire nuts, electrical tape, something to use as spacers for the fan (I've used washers, corks, chunks of plastic I found laying around)
you forgot eggs lol
I had those table lamp ones in my hand, but dh said they weren't ceramic and they were 5x more than the simple ceramic ones! fans are cheap on ebay.
We have that philosophy too. Visitors be warned! Cause that 'useful stuff' all has to be stored until the right purpose comes along for it.
Kiomey had a great i dea and i think we should try to do it. Have a cooler bator build party! Each person brings their stuff and some one coaches us how to build it. Food, and drinks and a good time included. (alcohol should be consumed AFTER building the incy) ANy one up for this? They seem kinda cheap to build...
Then we need a brooder condo:
Honestly, all I bought for the fridge Bator was a tube of silicone, the fan ($25, 120 volt from radio shack) and the thermostat ($50, I rent digital and nice, originally was $9 water heater thermostat, worked well if done right). Everything else was scrounged from stuff I had around.
Of course I bought the turners, $45 each with chicken and quail trays.
