Which is why I suggested using an old, unplugged fridge.
Your typical time-nuts kit will not have a heatflow that can warm the
interior of a fridge signifiantly, but the thermal inertia of the fridge
is perfect for reducing temperature fluctuations.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
