    Does any one have one of these turners that they can measure and tell me the rough size please. Im trying to decied if I should buy the turners complete or just buy the rails and make the frame parts so I can add a few extra rails to the standard design.

    thanks for any assistance

    thanks hatchcraft now my next question which I have spent hours searching the net for is what is the plastic piece call on the front of the motor called and does anyone sell that part with out the complete motor. Ive tried searching for arm, cam at all the places that sell the other parts to repair a turner.

    If we are talking about the same part, the patent referred to it as the reciprocating linkage. Don't know if it is available . kinda doubt it.[​IMG]

    I owe you big time hatchcraft. I will try to find it online.

    I would really like to build my own turners and make them another 2 rows wider plus I would like to use 12vdc motors instead of 110v and turn the eggs on demand rather than slowly turning them constantly. The hardest part to make is going to be the reciprocating linkage which could be a deal breaker.
