    Can anyone recommend a decent candler? My cheap flashlite works ok, but with brown eggs, it is hard and I want to see more!!

    So what are some good candlers, where do you order them and how much do they run??

    I have a mini mag and I can't see a thing! I ordered a Surefire G3 flashlight. They say Surefires are really good.

    I put a small lamp, with a 100w bulb, under a cardboard box and cut a hole in the top to set the egg on.[​IMG] It works great.:
