I did it, it is finished, and it works. Now I can keep the brains warm as I shove photons of light through them! Scroll to the bottom of the post for a gallery of images with details about various parts of the incubator project.
- thermal controller
- Silicone caulk
- 2 1/4″ PVC fittings
- 3/4″ PVC and fittings
- PVC glue
- Plastic tubing
- Adjustable metal clamps (for the tubing)
- 3mil plastic sheeting
- duct tape (for anything attaching to the incubator)
- masking tape (for anything which attaches to the microscope or table)
I always like looking at how a project evolves and becomes more refined and improved with each step. The image shows the 3 physical versions of the incubator (a secret version 2.5 was made in CAD but never made since plexiglass is expensive).
The gallery of images below contains additional information about the incubator.
