question:
Just wondering, I played with the temperature control on my TO a  
little bit more in my last roast, I figured out that the light on the  
top indicates if the heating element is on/off.  only problem with  
that is constant attention, with a variac you would be changing heat  
output instead of the thermostat and likely maintaining more  
consistent roast temps. Would you have enough temperature control  
range on a TO to put it on high, or even rewire and bypass TO's temp  
control, and use the variac to profile more easily?  Anyone hooked  
one of deez things into one of doze things? Thoughts anyone?
Do I need a variac for my TO?

If there is anything worth doing, it's worth doing right.
