    Hi there! Getting ready to build my own incubator and I'm wondering what some of you have done for an automatic egg turner. I've seen pics of manual turners in bators, but I know there will be a day where I can't get there in time, or I'll forget, so I'm wondering how to go about building a auto turner so I can 'set and forget' as it were.

    Thanks! Look forward to your responses!

    i don't have turner, i hand turning them

    but if you want to make an auto turner, then i think you can make it by attach a manual turner to a dynamo that is wired to a timer so you can set when the electricity come to dynamo and how long is that, only 5 seconds i think needed to make full swing to the eggs.

    can't have the pics or anything, i just draw it in my mind. [​IMG]
