The incubator is made from the case of an old black & white tv. I have not used it yet at this time. I currently have it in my shop which is only heated on weekends and it is taking a 150 watt bulb for heat and I have too much temperature variation from one side of the egg rack to the other. When I take it to the house and can use a smaller bulb I hope that the temperature variation will become less. If it does not I will add a second bulb on the right side of the incubator. I also need to add a larger water pan or try something else to get the humidity higher. It is holding at about 24% right now.
