VERY simple solution.

1. Learn and love the concept of a safety gap.
2. Use your variac at the regular setting, but only turn it a MAXIMUM of 
halfway up :)

This is what I'm currently doing on the Sam coil and it's wonderful.

Connect your 240 hot leads to terminals 1 and 2
Connect your output to terminals 1 and 3

you're set :)
