    I have been playing with the idea of gutting the LG still air bactor that was just given to me and putting the parts in a nice wooden case and adding a fan. Has any one else tried this?

    The main problem will be ensuring that the temperature you are reading is calibrated in the same way that the LG is.

    I know people regularly use still air incubators with success, but they aren't the easiest. If you are going to build a box, then why not add a fan and make it a forced air type.

    The fans are cheap, and are 12V

    Here is one I made
