    We raise thousands of quail and currently candle each egg by hand. We are trying to make a candling box we can put a GQF tray of 120 eggs on and pick out the bad.... Does anyone have any suggestions? received_390133558203637.jpeg

    Those are already available. Commercial hatcheries use them.

    from hand candling trays to 50,000 eggs and hour with automatic removal.

    Perhaps make a cart or box with a solid frame and a top made out of a modified setter tray. Illuminate the box and place an egg tray on top of it aligned with the modified one. Like a DIY version of this candling table about 1/3 down the following page.
