hi all....to all Genius ppl here has anybody built a hommade semiauto eggs turner?
Well, I almost didn't answer this because a genius, I'm not, LOL, but here's what I'd consider a semi-auto egg turner. You turn it by twisting the PVC pipe from outside the bator and the entire tray tilts side to side. It's just the bottom of a milk crate and an egg flat to hold the eggs with PVC pipe attached to each side.
i really appreciate ur help but i wonder if just tilting side to side would be ok ?
Could you just use a book type holder (you know the ones that hold a book at an angle) and place an egg carton on it. Then just flip the carton around each time?
I would think that it would mean less heat loss since it would just take a second to turn the whole carton.
PS I am not a genius either. Just Broke.
Tilting from side to side is all you're really supposed to do. It's all an automatic egg turner does.
thanks alot all
that's all i wanna know
Quote:I think the idea is to turn the eggs without opening the bator.
Speckledhen's turner has apvc pipe that goes through the wall of the bator, and you turn the eggs from outside.
