I am pretty sure I can isolate the line inside the house to the ULF-28 and use the Variac to increase the voltage to 120V. That should provide stable power. If not, the Variac ca nbe put to use with my coffee roaster!

Congratulations. Good luck with the unit. I do not have a dedicated line for the ULF-28 and that has resulted in the lamp not striking from time to time when other fixtures are drawing power from the outlet, so you really do need a source of steady power to the unit. I had a similar problem with a NuArc that was using a nearby outlet, though not the same one the ULF-28 is on now.
