P.S. If your heating element specs require line voltage you definitely do 
want to use an external
relay no matter if the current is within the coco relay's specs because you 
need to isolate such
external power and keep it from circulating near the coco mainboard, because 
of safety concerns.
coco relay should probably be used for low voltage d.c. only - it is really a 
*cassette player*
relay after all, ie, a low power device.         -ph
