    Tried a cheap made in china 48 egg incubator and I didn't like it so I made this from a wine cooler

    it holds trays in a turner I made

    its has auto temp, humidity, turner and a bunch of other options that we never use like 24hr/48hr hold etc. Its been running over a year constantly incubating while another wine cooler acts as a hatcher

    this is another one I built (picture taken during testing)

    the final design had 3 auto turning racks that were cheap junk that constantly needed there motors replaced. As we reduced the number of eggs we hatched per week this got stuck in the back of the spare room. I liked the design where the turners were on draw runner but the unreliable turners means that if we ever need to use this again then I will build my own tilt table style turners.
