    I posted this in the enlarging section, but this is probably a better place to ask.

    I have finally completed my Durst Laborator g139 that was missing many parts. I will be using a 500w bulb that I want to use at no more than 300W. For this purpose, I just purchased a Variac, or Variable auto transformer. Now the challenge for me is to find out the configuration, the "sequence", on how to connect the enlarger, Variac and Gra Lab timer together. Is it even possible?
    Thank you.

    I'd probably do it like this:

    wall socket to gralab to variac to enlarger bulb

    ic-racer, you mean connecting the Gra Lab to the wall, plug the variac into the timer and plug the enlarger into the Variac, correct?
