    I took the motor out of a space heater and am going to make a automatic turner out of it does anyone have any suggestions?

    autoturners turn VERY slowly... Im not mechanical (as far as motors are concerned)... so I have no idea how fast your motor would end up turning the eggs

    You can gear it down to turn the turner at any speed you wish.

    Automatic ice maker motors are supposed to work well.
