    Tornado and Spiral lams

    Started by Harry Jacoby in Collecting. Last reply by Blind Faith 1 hour ago. 5 Replies

    Does anyone here remember Tornado lamps and Spiral lamps? Tornado lamps were either cylinder shaped or in a rocket (called the rocket tornado). and consisted of small beads that would go when you turned it on and a propeller caused the beads to go in a vortex. Spiral lamps were bullet shaped and had larger pearl shaped beads that were propelled up a pump then went down a spiral path. They were both made in the 90s/early 2000s by a Chinese/Taiwanese company called Kenart and were imported by…Continue

    For a while now, I've have been creating custom color lava lamps for clients and have acquired quite in the inventory of new, odd color, and slightly used goo.I was also indecisive on what color to use and changed my colossus 2X in 3 months. (5 quarts of MT goo each time) I finally settled on clear with rainbow glitter. :)As a result of all this, I thought I'd offer some…Continue

    Hey all, hope everyone doing well.  Have had some pretty serious medical issues lately and great to be back among the living!  I was antiquing today and ran across a Aristocrat white squiggle base.  Double checked the site and seams to match up.  Here is my dilemma, the opening for the globe on the base is 4.5 inches wide.  I happen to have out my fourth of july flag lamp, which the base seemed similar. Measured that one and it's opening on base is 4.25 inches wide, slightly smaller.  So my…Continue

    Lamp Production

    Started by k-nano in General Goo. Last reply by Donald Besaw Jr on Saturday. 19 Replies

    Many of you are aware that Schylling is currently looking to design new products for the lava lamp. What I'm about to say is conjecture, but what if this is an opportunity to have part of the production moved back to the US?I've been wondering how the recent tariffs may be affecting the production of lamps in China. Lava lamps are exposed to the trade war and have already taken heavy hits because "lamps" are part of the items affected. Aluminum and steel as well. The tariff is 25%. This could…Continue
