Incubation with an iron?
    #910032 - 09/26/02 04:02 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Well its geting cold over here, and i think i wont be able to provide steady 72-85 temperature for my colonizing jars, i have this old iron which can heat up things preaty good and at minimum power im able to touch the heat source without problems (it's warm and nice)

so i was thinking using it as my heat source, i was thinking puting it on its rear side - heating side faced colonizing jars...do u think it will work?

also do u know if irons use alota electricity?

Probably not a good idea. Fire hazard springs to mind. If you can, spend the time and a couple bucks and build an incubator. Doesn't cost that much, and will work wonders for you.  Click here for incubator tek
Hope that helps :smile:

well, some where on that Iron it will tell you how many watts it is, which is a good indecator of how much power it uses. But before you incubate with that I would set it up and runs some tests with a thermometor to see how hot it will get things..

Hell, a small watt light bulb in a tin can - wrapped with tin foil would work.

I'd have to agree with bruiser, that does sound like a real fire tragedy waiting to happen.
Plus I think that method would be real expensive too

Right, who's buying the next round?

Anyone that is using an Iron or a heating blanket is asking for a FIRE.

Make an incubator!
Use a submersible aquarium heater.
