    very nice setup...I assume you have some "machining" equipment in order to build an egg turner like that. Very very nice.

    Thanks Guys for the kind words. There are no real brains involved just woodwork and metal work ability learned at school 20 odd years ago and persistance to keep working through any hiccups encountered along the way.

    Ok, apart from a pedastal drill and other hand held power tools I dont have any machine shop tools.
    All the aluminium for the rack is standard extrusion profiles that I bought at the hardware store.
    Its all cut to size and pop riveted together.

    estimated cost in aussie dollars is around $150.00.

    Regards
