    but it didn't say anything about it being safe or anything so

    If you use the search function on the blue line above here, you will find lots of detailed plans for making incubators with bread boxes, potato boxes or even ice chests. These have all been tested by the folks who have made them and they work great. Good luck with your project. Suz

    Here s one I made from a 48 qt cooler


    It uses a water heater thermostat, light fixture for heat, and a computer fan to circulate air.


    Use the search function to find lots more helpful info on this subject.
