VinylFlat and GroovyPouch leaves me flat- and that’s a good thing.

Wondering if line voltage plays a bit in the temperature variances. Forgot to turn it off over night on medium, so just under 130. Was going to turn it off before bed and let it cool overnight. No harm what so ever.

I let it warm up a half hour or more before using it. How long are you waiting?

I moved the thermometer a little bit and got 142 on high. Going to find a better thermometer - need to find the thermocouple for my DMM.

Picked up this so I could start a record in the evening before bed and have it turn off after set time, then cool off the rest of the night. Tried to this and forgot to turn it off after a few beverages.

This seems like a useful device but pointless unless you have an arm that auto lifts or it will turn off with the needle on the groves.

I can't tell if you're being funny or have lost the plot?

I used one of those timers with those little plug in doohickeys that turn things on or off. I just set the off one for my desired time and take out the on doohickey. Your timer is cooler though.

There are app-based smart plugs as well (my wife has a herd of them that she uses for turning on & off grow lights, heating pads, etc. for stuff she's germinating indoors or in the greenhouse). If they supported a countdown option, that might work as well (although there's something to be said for a mechanical timer in the interests of KISS).
