You can buy a timer to do just this. Gemmy sell one cheap that you can usually buy in Wal Mart

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=3059935

It MAY be suitable but it may not - what make & model is your machine?
it doesnt exactly say the model it says "400 Watt Fog Machine with wireless remote" then it says at the botom "FITCO Item# 19133"

i found it its a heshan lide electronic enterprise company ltd fogger
model # FE-300IRM
Item # 19133

Nevermind turns out the timer you told me will work with my fogger thanks!

I think that there's one place that makes all the fog machine timers, they just put them in different boxes or change the labels once in a while. I just got a Gemmy 400W machine, came from Michael's but not in a Gemmy box - something like Celebrations Intnl. I'm using a Heshan Lide timer with it (from Party City), sold under the Seasonal Visions label. Works fine.

What I mean to say is that it seems that most low-end foggers can use generic timers. When you get into the more expensive machines, there may be specific features of the fogger that the timer is designed to control.

If anyone fancies getting me a Walmart one then I'd be very grateful. Obviously I'd refund cost and postage etc but it's impossible to find such things in Australia

Do you know how difficult it is to get a green card?

Hey, I'd consider it but I like Australia apart from the lack of good Halloween stuff

I just homebrewed a timer using my $10 prop controller board with 2 pots and a solid state relay. Testing tonight.
