    I just noticed that my LG turner is not growling at me like it normally does. It has finally quit on me (after only 8 or so months! [​IMG]) Is there any way that I can rig it to turn, or so that I can hand turn, without actually hand turning?

    It would probably be easier just to buy a new one. I have an LG turner, and I'm trying to figure out a way that you could turn it by hand, but I'm not coming up with anything.

    I was kind of wondering if I could take the motor off and 'flip' it to turn them, but I'm afraid that it would turn too far and dump them all out!! Good thing the eggs in there are due soon. I still won't be able to get another turner. I'll have to check and see if I can get another motor cheaper. Thanks poulets. [​IMG]
