    Ok...like wolftracks I want instructions, pics, videos...everything! lol [​IMG] I have a great incubator I made but the turning is the problem. I just don't get the mechanics of what you just did. Or of my LG turner. It all makes no sense to me. (im just not mechanically minded I guess) [​IMG] But I have never seen anything like this. [​IMG] You could sell these instructions on ebay! But don't do that til you show me. [​IMG]
