put a towle inbetween the heating pad and the carpet. On the highest setting, a normal heating pad only has a surface temp. of about 175 degrees f.

That would not be cool. Imagine explaining that one to the Police and the Fire Department... and your landlord.... Ouch. But I use one so maybe I should move the damn thing off the carpet. haha.. No.. I'm sure it's good. I keep the temp real low too.

I put a glass mirror inbetween the carpet and the heating pad even better!

i was using a 300 watt aquarium heater-
i made a new incobater to hold at least 70 or so jars-more if i cram them-but the aquar heater wouldnt heatit ,it was to big-i added a heating pad elevated off th floor with plywood-then pad,then incobater-i had to put it on a timer,because it got my jars to hot on low-without the aquarium heater-so i put it a timer-(me-every so often i cut it off-lol)and added the aquarium for moist heat on the insdie
works groovy now-
what im saying is watch it with a pad-they might overheat your jars-mine was a cheapie-15 bucks at rite aid-i have no idea how many watts it is though-
