Needing some pointers for my homemade incubator.

You may have to run it a few days for the interior wood to absorb some moisture. Then check your humidity level. Might have to add a 2nd pan. You've got a lot of volume inside that cabinet.
Take a look at this egg turner from Incubator Warehouse
It will hold 42 chicken eggs. It rolls the eggs back and forth. The motor rotates once every 4 hours. I'm using now on its first hatch. I've bought some 1/16" HDPE and am making longer slides so it makes use of the entire tray.
I like the idea of the turner you showed and I have seen manual ones using pvc that work the same. I thought I read that eggs should be in the incubator standing on end until lockdown. That's not possible with that kind of turner. Did I read wrong? Is one method better than the other? I like the idea of not having tilting trays because the eggs will always be the same distance from the heat source.
