    Hi, Chuck.

    I bought my mat from Farmtek and just noticed today as well that it's not on their list. I Googled "Kane heat mat" and found several possibilities. Here's one for reptile enthusiasts(!):

    Good luck!

    Here's a site that has a pic of the one that I have. 18" x 18" after all:

    That's about the price I paid as well.

    Do any of you that use these heated mats also use the thermostats to control them? The whole shooting match becomes a bit spendy if you add the thermo control

    I have a rheostat control, no temp probe. I had to fiddle a bit to get the dev to stay at the correct temp, but I've found the right setting. I figure that if I add another electric heater to heat up the whole basement, that'll cost a lot more. Plus, the time it would take to heat up those cement walls once I decide I want to get down there to start work...

    The ambient temp is fairly consistently around 16 C, tolerable with a good sweater and good socks (the OTHER piggie warmers, much cheaper). The mat bumps the dev temp up a notch, the consistency being a major factor.

    Of course, then I'm still dealing with stop and fix at 16 C. I'm not sure that that's terribly consequential, but then I'm not anywhere near an authority on the matter. Ideally, I could have bought a longer mat to accommodate more and larger trays, I guess.

    I bought it from Farmtek last spring:
    Also check out their or others for Seedling Heat Mats.
    They are much less expensive and I believe cover the
    temperature range needed. Dan

    I have the temp regulator and probe,, I wonder where this is put if a live pig is on the matt rather than my chems???
    took a while to figure out , in fact I think we had to rewire the controller.

    I tried this sucker out myself since I have the same body weight and shape as a mature swine. Though nice and toasty the material was very hard to sleep on, I guess if I grow more body hair it will cushion the weight.

    Thanks Murray, this was a winner on tips of the year catagorey.

    Pigs aren't really renowned for their thick fur.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    Somewhere around here I've got a heating pad that used to warm a water bed. If I can find it I'll have to try it out. Hmmm, if it's not been seen for a decade or more, where is it most likely to be? Sly
