    X2. We already know enough that this could spiral WAY out of control.

    It kina depends on what type of egg turner you are looking to build if you are trying to build the type that goes in the styro bators it is a lot easier to build your bator around dimensions that will allow you to purchase one and set it in the bator it is possible to build one if you are adapt at sheet metal fab I am about half way through building one I just have not gotten back to it yet I used an old defrost timer motor for the motor part I had to fab the cam out of sheet metal etc bators are easy to build a l;ot of good ideas on the bator page
