Hard to believe that its been more than 2 years. I picked up the voltage controller more than a year ago but couldn't find the heater I wanted at the price I wanted. A week or so ago I hit pay dirt, Walmart had an on-line closeout for a 1500 watt quartz tower heater for $14.88 with free delivery to the store. This morning the house was chilly but the forecast was for 80s in the afternoon. So I sat the heater in front of my easy chair adjusted my hack for a comfortable continuous glow and had my morning coffee as I tested my hack. Why they make radiant heaters with on/off thermostats is a mystery to me.
I remember when power tools and small appliances had flexible cords.
