    Hey all,
    I just got the turner today and have a question...
    How much should it turn and over what period of time?
    Seems as though it goes from starting 45º one way all the way to 45º the other way (90º total) and then all the way back again to where it started (90º back) all in about one hour.
    Is this as it should be? Is that too much?

    That's what it does. Very gentle, constant turning.

    Quote:It's actually fantastic. Brinsea's turning radius and speed are much closer to the commercial turners and closer to what the research says is optimal turning than the turners that fit in the styrofoam incubators. I know it seems fast/big, but that's what makes it great. Broodies turn them 180 degrees up to 96 times a day, so unless yours is set on turbo there's no way it could be "too much."
