Thank you Thank you Thank you I would not have thought of this!
I am having a man at work put one of these together for me, and it will save me a lot of money.

ok, I just have one question about the pics....

Where the heck did the blue wire come from?? It's only shown in the later pics, not the initial ones...

Is my mind playing tricks on me again?

Looks great!!

One problem you use electrical tape NOT a good idea.
It is an unreliable joint and can over heat and worse cause a fire. It's unsafe and a electrical inspector wil have a fit and fail your electrical certificate. Go to home depot and buy wire nuts for pennys a piece. They will save money and time in the long run and will not fail and could save your herps.

Excellent step-by-step instructions - simple enough for even the most electrically inept. Thanks a bunch.

Great Job Lisa Now i just lost some business at the store!!!... Nah you did it right and for people that take the time have better results! You don't have to be an Electrical expert your local large hardware home depot eyc has books for about 20$ that perfectly illustrates these things. . And for the job well done your reptile now ate for free this month with your savings!!! Job well done!

No, the unit must be manually adjusted. The idea is that the rheostat adjusts the amout of power given to the heat pads. This allows you much finer adjustment of heat. I assume you could hook a thermostat through this unit. The great thing about the THERMOSTAT is that it will automatically regulate the temp of the heat pad (or wherever else you put it's temperature probe). I also assume in some cases, if you already have a thermostat to regulate temps, then you wouldn't even need a rheosstat. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong with this.
