    I was wondering if anyone had a candler that you can candle darker brown eggs with. As far as homemade ones I havent had much luck. Thank you.[​IMG]

    I use an old slide projector with a black foam rubber gasket at the front of the lens. Intense light with no heat. It works great for me.

    I like my surefire 6p with an LED lamp. Can candle in the turner and get though green eggs pretty well. Lights up white eggs like a night light. A bit pricey though. Example pics can be found if you search "surefire 6p"

    I use this. It is my DH's Milwaukee work light-18 volt and cordless. Leaves hands free to work with eggs!

    I'm new at this, but I just used my son's view master projector. It had the best light in the house! LOL the flashlights didn't show as much.

    I use a million candle power spotlight with a terracotta flower pot upside down on top of it. Focuses the light wonderfully and keeps the eggs away from the heat.
