    Anyone have information on what to use for an egg turner motor? pics and parts to buy and instruction on how you did it would be great. Thanks

    Quote:Opa, I'm interested to know what puts the Miller turner over the GQF hovabator turner???? I've only had experience with the GQF and no experience with the Miller.
    Thanks in advance for any knowledge/help. [​IMG]

    Sorry john farmer, no help here with homemade turners........you might want to check out the 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' thread under the FORUM heading. Perhaps there is info there. [​IMG]

    If you look at the homemade incubator pages there is a few egg turners but you have to turn the turner. Hope that helps!
