I have access to Variac's so I thought I might give them a shot to control my Gene CAfe. I understand that power fluctuations at the outlet are common and can make a significant difference in controlling your roast profile's conistency.
So... My Variac's can be set to 120V or 140V. I imagine I would want to use 120V.
Second questions. From there, I can set my Variac from 0 to 100%. As wall outlet are supposed to provide 120V, am I correct in that I would set it to 100% and then plug in the old GeneCafe? I'd rather not fry my GeneCafe if possible... :)
Thanks in advance,
