FYI - you should use a dimming thermostat and not a on/off thermostat for incubators.

We do not have any dimming stats available in the country that I am aware of, except for the ones Bjorn at Reptile Garden has brought in.

I got one from him a few weeks ago for an incubator and I must admit it works really well keeps my temps at exactly where I want them.
It also has a very tight adjustable tolerance, which helps a lot in keeping stable temps.
