    Really, this time around, it will just be used as a hatcher. I have four staggered hatches in two incubators right now (Covatutto 7 and R-Com 20 Pro), and needed to quickly build another 'bator so I can hatch out everything. Hence the Poor Man's 'bator, take two.

    Ignore the temp... just hooked this all up so it is still stabilizing. I have a few heat sinks by way of baby food jars filled with sand. I have a water wiggler, a thermohygrometer, a thermostat hooked up to a 40W light bulb, a 50 pence piece for size comparison, and a weekly medicine container for my water.

    oh, i see. [​IMG]

    that's a great incubator. [​IMG]

    maybe the *problem* is the bator is misplaced, you may put it to undiscoverable and unreachable by children.

    and that's your kid? he's handsome [​IMG]

    and i love the mini and slim design speaker than active big speaker like mine. [​IMG]

    by the way, may i know what thermo/hygro meter that you think is better in quality/accuracy but not too expensive? i can't get cheaper than US$ 40 in here when i see only $1 on e bay. [​IMG] very expensive thing in my country.

    Hi Mulia,

    Not sure about US brands... I live in the UK. Here, Komodo is a great brand. Anyone have any suggestions for stateside brands?

    The younger kiddo cannot reach it because I have some things blocking his way. The other kiddo is 4 and knows not to touch mommy's incubator. [​IMG]

    Yeah, these speakers are excellent!

    oh, UK ( i just being remembered to harry potter and JK rowling), and how much komodo's price over there? i'm sure you are using poundsterling not USD. [​IMG]


    oh that's good for him to understand it, as for me i print an A4 paper write big warning to not touch my bator at all cost. [​IMG]


    and, i use TFA thermohygro and that is unreliable thermohygro cause the digital and analog even have problem although being made by same factory. TFA is made in germany.

    than you cherlyn [​IMG]

    About £4 each, I would guess, is how much I pay.

    Yep, I put notes on my 'bators as well, saying "NO TOUCHY!" LOL

    You are welcome.
