Frank, did you let them simmer slowly for 14 min in plenty of water, after putting the eggs in the boiling water. Don't forget to poke a hole in the fat end.

Thought you might like this Frank. Being that you are a woodworkers. That is a shallow bowl I turned with some nice hard boiled eggs in side.

ps: I like soft boiled eggs too. When I was making the poached eggs, Sunday, I was thinking about soft boiled eggs. And I need to make some soon.

I put the eggs in a pot of water, turn on the heat; and when it comes to a "berl" I turn off the heat and set a 10 minute timer. When time's up, I dump the hot water, leave the eggs in the pot, "wrench" the eggs in the "zinc" in cold water, and pull them out one at a time to peel them when they're still warm, leaving the rest to chill until their turn comes up.

This method works well for me, even with the local eggs that have hard, brown shells. These eggs are very different from store-bought eggs back home with shells that I suspect are carefully calculated to be as thin as possible and still survive normal handling, based no doubt on using the least possible amount of calcium in the feed.
