Mmm. Interesting. Now you've got me wondering if I could adapt this timer for creating a turner for my Multiquip with the lever on the front. It's cheap enough to play with and have a go.

I think this timer allows itself to be set to come on when required for as long as required.
It pretty much has operating instructions in the ebay ad so seems clear on what it does.

The way I read it (to just turn in the one direction) you set it to cycle mode and you can set A and B to each be between 0.01 secs to 100 hrs.

So you would set A to 30 mins and B to 10 secs and use the B output to run the motor.

I'm pretty sure it is just the ticket to run a motor for my method of autoturn. Good luck.

Like all the others I like this idea. :thumbs: It is simple and it beats the professionals at their own game.
I have a few questions: Are the egg trays stacked on top of each other or are they spaced?
How are the eggs candled? Do you take the top tray out to view the eggs in the bottom tray?

I stack the egg trays on top of each other, they have posts on the plastic trays designed for this.
I build incubators with three trays and haven't heard any problems. One customer actually extended the incubator height and does it with 4 high.

Yeah, you do have to lift the trays to get to ones below. But it is pretty easy to lift the whole trays of eggs out of this style of incubator with the top lid because you are leaning right over the top of it.

With just one tray in incubator I don't bother taking tray out, just do it at night and candle each one where they sit.
