I saw it for 20 bucks and i want an outlet style timer so it fits flush into my project box next to my stc-1000.
EDIT: The ratings had me a little confused.. is this rated for 8 amps? or 15? The bucket heater draws 8 and from my limited understanding of electricity, I'd rather not run full capacity. Correct?
