    I just built this bator and I still need to buy a timer for my turner and then its done. It holds 60 eggs at a time. Any opinions to make it better or ideas are welcome

    Thank you all and yes the turner is homeade. The two egg trays rotate front to back with the grill meat turner. I used file cabnint bars and connected the motor on a cam to the top tray and connected the top tray to the bottom tray and both trays move together at the same time.
