I am somewhat embarrassed to say I really didn't check, I was paying
attention to the color and bean temp and forgot to set my stopwatch!  In
general it should have been about 9min give or take 30 seconds.

Sounds like a decent 'in the middle' roast time, about what I get with the
Caffe' Rosto for a medium dark, 450-460f, roast at 120v. I plan on trying to
more replicate the super fast FR roast times I've heard of under 5min for
comparison purposes. Bob inadvertently did it setting his Variac to 120v on
the dial but not checking the Variac outlet voltage. 450f in 4:45 if I
recall. The Variac output measured was 135v! The Variac is designed for 110v
input, hence a higher input will give a higher output. My Variac output
134v, set at dead center 120v on the dial, with 119v wall outlet, about 6pm.
Later that night, around 11pm, measured 120.5v from the same outlet. Just
another factor to take into account.
Day before yesterday I was going to start some 'Variable Variac Rosto
Rocking' roast tests but it was 101f in the shade when I got home. I roast
in the garage, it's even slightly hotter. Didn't 'need' any coffee roasted
so decided not to 'brave the heat.' In a temporary lapse of judgement
created some homeroast list 'heat' instead... >gr>
