    Here is my latest creation. Same dimensions as the Sportsman. Just need to come up with egg trays. I'll just have to study on it a while. Maybe some that will tilt back and forth by manual turning. We'll see. Perry

    If anyone else has any ideas for a turner, please let me know. The last post looks like a good idea. I'm still in the thinking mode. Oh that may be dangerous!! LOL...[​IMG]

    I think it looks pretty darn cool.

    Putting solid stable trays on wooden rails with automatic egg turners would be the easy way...

    Try Eggcartons.com they have a replacement motor for the egg turner. Maybe you can make one yourself.

    Or you could just buy a couple of regular egg turners and put them in your trays????
