    Instead of buying an automatic turner can a rack mounted on a dowel going threw the incubator wall work? just put some blocks under each end of the rack, so you can adjust how far the eggs are tilted. And just tilt that 3 times a day, back and fourth. Of course I am also thinking of putting egg holders on the rack. Dave

    Ya Dave I think that would work really well. As long as you seal where the dowels go through the incubator walls.

    I think I did what your talking about, but I used pvc instead of a dowel. I just turn it from side to side at least 3 times a day.
