If you wire in power you can place auto turners on each shelf and load them with the eggs to turn for you.
LOL yeah, the hand turning crap is just for the beta runs. Ordered the aluminum and steel yesterday to build the turning system. Still lots of odds and ends to get for it. Decided on the heating system as well. GQF sells the replacement heaters for their cabinet models. Instead of one tho im going to use 4(the project is about 4x the size of a gqf sportsman). I'm aiming for 10 trays and hoping for enough room for a bottom flat roller style turner.
