    I am in the process of building my own incubator and need some advice. What is the best type of (low cost) thermostat to use? I have seen both waterheater and wafer type in the homemade incubator section. Also, where is the best place to install the thermostat...closer to the eggs or closer to the heatsource? I will be using a 40/60 watt bulb for heat.
