Wow!  Thanks, Ron, so much for the excellent tradition offering.  I can't
believe I won it and can't wait to try it out on my Poppery Roaster.  I've
been wanting to get something like this, but since my electrical expertise
is practially nil, this was my best chance!

Mike,
 
Thanks for the heads up on the dimmer 
controller.  I have the info printed out to modify the popper so I will try 
to do that.  Wish me luck.  I really appreciate the help I am 
getting from you and all the other veteral roasters.  I am having a 
wonderful time since I discovered home roasting.  The coffee is sure a 
lot better, and with a little experience and help some from friends, I am sure 
it will get a lot better.

Hello Betty
 
I am kind of new with this, and I am also roasting 
my coffee with a popcorn popper.  Works like a charm!  I am also in 
the process of putting a shut off switch for the resistance, so that the beans 
can cool down.  Do you mind sharing the info that Mike has given to 
you.  I might need it, before I burn my popper.
 
thanks

1500 watt dimmers can be had on Ebay for $20 to $30.  I bought two, brand
new.  Retail is about twice to three times that amount.  You would need a
dimmer with at least that much power rating to control the heater and motor.

I do think a variac is the better choice, but much more costly for a beginner
roaster.  Especially when an unmodified popper works pretty darned good.
