Is it OK to have my eggs "turned" constantly?

I can use the timer-motor from a washer or dryer to turn the eggs VERY SLOWLY. They would be shifting from side-to-side about 30-35 degrees, CONSTANTLY.

Would this be worse than turning several times a day? It would be very easy to build. I would not need to buy a timer and, better yet, it's easier to wire-up. The power that the tiny little motor will use, must be insignificant, right?

The Brinsea Octagon20 units are ALWAYS moving, very very slowly, from side to side. All the way over one way, sloooooowly, then back the other way, slooooooowly. Then all over again.

So I don't think there's any problem with your plan!

Constant movement is the way most egg turners work (except hens, of course.)
