Hi,
I'm Knuth, Raelenes partner.
Our incubators is made from a styrofoam box wit a few ventholes cut in it.
The eggs sit in an eggcarton on a bit of plastic pipe to put them on an angle.We turn the eggs by hand.It is heatet by 2 Car headlight bulbs (12V)
The thermostat is made from a car headlight relay and some electronic bits I had.I could send plans if anyone is interrested,but any thermostat
(hotwater etc.) will work fine if it can go to the right temperature (38 C).
We use a small container with water in it that needs topping up frequently.
The temperature is checked with a good fishtank thermometer pocked through the lid just above the eggs.
The whole thing works very well if kept warm,but so would most other designs I have seen recently.Its not rocketsience,really.
Knuth
