Cheap Flip Flop Timer


What is the cheapest way to switch a single wire (runs 110v 4 amp load) on for 10 minutes, and then off for 10 minutes indefinitely ? The cheapest purpose built thing i could find was $100.

These multifunction relays and a base would be around $51

You could set it to repeat cycle mode. I believe these particular timers call it the "flicker" mode
