At this stage, I have removed inappropriate posts from this thread three times. My patience and the patience of other moderators is wearing very thin. Think before you post because there will be consequences if this keeps going. This could include formal warnings or bans from BYP. No one wants that to happen but this has to stop for the benefit of the whole forum community.

Please feel free to post questions or helpful comments. There's a lot to be learnt and shared on the topic of DIY auto turners.

Hey Dennis, how often have you set it to turn and does it move slowly or fairly fast.
I reckon this is a fairly simple conversion that any one could do going by your photos, keep up the good work :thumbs:

I've set it to move every hour, it takes about 45 secs so is pretty smooth.
It is a very easy project.

denis,

at "45 seconds" it'll be smoother than most human operators.

It would be interesting to hear if the owner experiences better hatching %s with the "move every hour" setting, as opposed to the previous Day/Night.

Nice work.
