How can I make an automatic egg turner (for chicken eggs) about 6.?

Hi peeps, I would like to make an auto egg turner. Turn 6 to 8 chicken eggs about 180 degress once every hour. (approx) (this is for an incubator) I have motors etc...... all the gear with a few ideas...... Timing and distance of travel are my main concerns...... The turning process should also be as smooth as possible and quite slow... The eggs should not be covered as keeping their temperature constant is crucial.....

Auto egg turner motor. What motor do I need for my incubator?

I built an incubator from a redundant wine cooler but the motor wasn't up to the job. I had underestimated the total load and stripped the gears in the gearbox. Can someone tell me in very basic terms what I need to change and where to look for them? Also, the top connection needs to be a ball and socket type affair (not very smooth at the moment). Where do you buy components like that? Thanks. Paul http://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=33362
