    What do you think of using a CO2 incubator for incubating eggs?
    We use them in the lab, and they are excellent at maintaining temperature. The only problem that I can see is that there's no window...
    Thanks !!

    ETA : I searched for one new, and they typically run around $3500... but it would do a lot which I didn't need, either.

    Does it have a Double door? You could take off the Outer door, and insulate the Inner door?

    We have an ancient Floor model New Brunswick shaker I have called dibbs on--if it would ever die!

    I won the auction for $35 bucks, so let's hope it works out!

    A heated water jacket would keep the temperature really stable.

    I hope it's a winner for you!
