Have you considered something like a constant voltage transformer? They are also sometimes called boot buck transformers.

These guys posted a nice schematic:


Two secondary, as the primary voltage fluctuates the output of the secondary averages their values.

the easy way is to get a generator of your own and mount a better muffler on the thing --

occasionally there will be Sorensen and Hewlett Packard AC constant voltage sources on EBay -- these can run from a few hundred dollars to many thousands.

here in New Jersey we have Third World Electric Co. as our supplier -- inthe summer the voltage can range from 102 to 127 VAC.
