How much did it cost to build?


Im from argentina, the prices are very relative and i have wood, glass, electric stuff and a lot of things in my workshop, so i didn't need to buy a lot of things.

Paint and brushes: USD 12
Thermostat: USD: 13
Misc: USD 10

That incubator looks great! The light is there for heating purposes or you're doing invitro?

I think we are the only argentinians here!

Hi guidoji; A very nice DIY project that shows good craftsmanship in building it. As GadgetGuy said it's nice to see some one that's a bit more creative than using a plastic bin or paper box and a heating pad to heat it with that has no thermostat to control it with. It's like deep frying a frozen turkey I can't help but wonder how many people have burned down their homes doing it.

It's for visualization purposes (Dulux S 9W). For heating purposes there are a resistor inside the bottom.
ps: im guidoji
i forget to say... that incubation chamber is the new part of my "indoor growing kit" :D

New pics, i added a digital thermometer (with in-out sensor) and a dimmer to control the resistor. I also add a manometer to my pressure cooker :D

You have a really sweet setup!

Ive been contemplating installing a manometer on my PC as well, i bought it second hand without a box or instructions so i dont know how high it goes.

How did you install yours?

I just sterilized one jar and one bag of brown rice at 14 PSI @ 45 min. I love measure everything!! :D:D

Is that a MARMICOC pressure cooker?

Its a Clock™ pressure cooker (Brazilian)


How did you install yours?

I made a hole on the top (luckily, it was made from aluminum) and i screwed the manometer, then i screwed a nut in the other side of the top and sealed it with heat resistant silicone because i couldn't find the correct nut.
