    I have an old egg turner ,with out the motor and you can turn it real easy ,do you think if I put my eggs in it and turned it by hand that it would be ok to use ? would it be the same ,this would turn them much faster than the egg turner I know ,But would it be ok

    Some of the egg turners that are in the cabinet bators turn once every hour or so, and they don't gradually turn them, they just turn them from one side to the other. Very different than the ones that gradually turn them 6 times a day, where they are constantly moving. I think they would be fine.
