    Could someone please post a pic or two of their automatic turners for the bators please.

    I am going to be building a cabinet style wooden bator and I am curious of how to set-up an auto turner. I have never seen one, so am curious if I can build something myself, or if I need to buy and modify something to use.

    Thanks for the help!

    I would be happy to show you mine, only I received a bunk one from Home Barn and Basics [​IMG] I returned it immediately via priority mail, and they sent a working one "parcel post to Hawaii", which means I'm in for a LONG wait till it arrives. I'm so bummed! I wish I would have known so I can pay the difference :eek: I've only been able to hand turn them twice a day rather than 3-4. Is this going to ruin my 49 pure bred eggs? [​IMG]
