    I have 86 eggs to candle tonight. Can anyone tell me a fast way to do it without the eggs getting cold?[​IMG] Who makes the best chandler I'm not having much luck with a flash light.

    I was having issues with flashlights and went to TSC to look for a candler. The only one they had required an electric outlet and had mixed reviews. I've been using my Bushnell tactical flashlight lately and it is terrific for candling (325 lumen). Only downside is that it had a striking ridge around the lens that you have to be careful with so as not to damage eggs. You can probably get a similar lumen strength flashlight @ your local box store for around ~$20.
