Let me get this straight. I can either:

get a RHEOSTAT (just a dimmer) to control the amount of heat coming from the flexwatt


get a THERMOSTAT so that it sets the temperature to a specific level

but in both instances I will need a thermometer to gage the temperature

the only difference is that a thermostat adjusts itself, and a rheostat just lets me adjust based on the thermometer reading
