    Just found my candler. Since my 1st hatch ever is in the bator, i figured i would go ahead and build/buy/borrow some elusive million dollar tool to candle with...All i came up with was this Dewalt 20v flashlight,...it just so happens a toilette paper roll sleeve snugly fits into the lights round plastic. Might do a lil tape to be sure. It lays down quite sturdily, and makes eggs glow like a brilliant sun. Easiest part of whole project..lol. Funny part is, i was out in the tool house looking for wood, screws, light fixtures, anything i might have on hand to make a candler....after about 5 mins of looking, the idiot holding the light(Me) realized the candler was in my hands...

    Funny, that was the exact same design of my first candler too. I recently purchased an actual candler because my flashlight got old.
