    I was in Home Depot...smoke alarm area....they have an electric wall outlet timer that can be programed to turn on and off 15 x's per 24 hours....$17.00 Could this be a piece of the puzzle we are looking for to turn on a turning motor and swing arm? We can all build wooden trays inexpensively....so anyone out there that can help figure this turning thing out....inexpensively.

    That could be used with a power inverter an a automotive power antenna. But I think a $3 light timer would work just as well.

    That's what this thing was...a light timer, but I have never seen one that could be turned on and off that many times.....15 turns per day would have the eggs Rock'en....but the big cabinets turn about 12 times per day.

    This one I got at walmart could switch every 30 minutes so could run a power antenna from position A to position B an back every hour. That would turn eggs from one side to the other every 30 minutes or 48 times a day. It also has a 1rph motor inside you could take out an put a cam & switch on it to run other setups.
