    I bought a 1502 Sportsman Wafer style Incubator, used. I was wondering if it is possible to convert it to a digital style and how complicated it would be. Has anyone have experience with this? or tried it?

    Thanks for the info.

    you can convert it and it's not that hard really your replacing the switch but I would still keep the wafer in series with the digital as a backup. I would also replace the wafer after you get it home and setup in it's place. Shouldn't be all that hard and if you Google hacking a sportsman incubator to digital someone may have done the work for you already and made a nice pdf or web page.
