Wally used to, don't know if he still does. 
If I remember correctly he had an old frig, thermostat and light bulb.
Worked well when I saw it.

Yes, Mr Ben, I have use incubators in the past: 92F and about 70%+ humidity.  Worked excellent.

I prefer to hatch queens in a hive, just my personal preference.  Each queen cell is placed in a cage, wether incubator or hive.

Blessings
