Default basking light for a bearded dragon .

Hi guys i have just joined and i have nearly finnished setting up my 4ft x 18"x 18" vivexotic for a bearded dragon which i hope to get in a couple of months time .
my problem is i had a 100w basking light on to a piece of wood and the temperature only went up to 93f so i got a 150w basking bulb but that one takes the basking temp up to 117f but i have been told that i need about 110f for the beardies , so i brought a microclimate b1 dimming thermostat but that only lets the temperature go up to 95f than the bulb starts dimming and the bulb nearly goes off, what am i doing wrong ? thanks in advance .
