    Just wanted to see what everyone thinks about this old pepsi cooler I picked up. I was thinking the 225 watt incukit from incubator warehouse should do the trick. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...Thanks[​IMG][​IMG]

    That would be an awesome bator. Able to see on the 3 sides!

    Great incubator shell, you would definitely get the large high wattage incu-kit. I think there is one made for cabinet incubators.

    3 way viewing is AWESOME!

    You really lucked out. How much did ya spend on it?

    You could really fit quite a few Little Giant, or Hovabator egg turners in that sucker.

    Good Luck, and happy hatching.

    The 3 windows are really neat yes the egg turners would work well. So far I only have 20 bucks tied up in it. Thanks for the compliments I guess I did luck up on finding this.

    Very nice. I hope to upgrade to a homemade cabinet one day. I love your cabinet and at $20 I feel that was a steal. It looks really great because you have all those slots you can make whatever size (height) shelves you want.

    Very nice find! It's gonna make an excellent bator that looks so good you don't even have to hide it!

    What a great deal Chad! I looked forever for one of those and finally used that old fridge. Can't wait to see how it turns out. Good luck!
