So, I have a lamp that I replaced the master fluid in, I’ve used 70% h20 and 30%P.G. I coated the globe with a good 50/50 mix of SLS, poured that out, dropped the coil in, and funneled the warm wax into the globe as per usual. It looked nice and clean and ready to be awesome. I let the wax cool completely at the bottom and then funneled my h20/P.G. Mix in and the wax is sticking to the sides as if I hadn’t used anything to coat the globe. Also the wax seems reluctant to move upwards but when it…Continue
IMG_2196.JPGGreetings all, I'm a newbie at this, tried to do the saltwater/one drop of dish soap trick to clean up my lamp, and this happened. At this point I think I just need to start over with new wax and liquid, but the price to do that is more than a new lamp (granted it's an import) Since this is an import lamp, what would you do? Rebuild, sell for parts, or...?…Continue
Hello Everybody,For anyone interested, here are a few pictures of the newly completed Space Shuttle (actually, it's called 'The Orbiter.)It took much longer than I expected...But I also found time to make a pair of rockets (while I'm still waiting for the aluminium spinner to finish off making my new nose cones and bases for my next six Lunar sized rockets... Watch this space.)…Continue
I am looking to buy a wave machine, the ultimate one would be Gaint Pacifica or the Atlantis model.I know these are quite rare so maybe a Caribean or the Adriatic model.They must be in good condition with everything working correctly including the wave fluid etc., becauseI live in the UK and have no way of getting them repaired if they are faulty.Hughes wave machines used to sell his "Model One" wave motion machine but it seems theyare no longer available.So if anybody has one that they would…Continue
Aaaand first post! Hey! Hi!I'm new to the lava lamp scene but already quite obsessed. When I went through the Lava Library, my curiosity peaked at the promo image for the Midnight Lava Lite - the last row seems to show lamps with black liquid and green wax! So I went and I've tried to find pictures of lamps with black liquid, but to no avail and I am just dying of curiosity now to see one. Idk I can just imagine the wax occasionally emerging from the depths of the black liquid and in my mind…Continue
I have a vintage orange Crestworth Astro with copper base and cap. I believe it's an MK4. I don't know if it's just the age of the lamp, but the wax keeps separating. There is a lighter disc of wax that collects to the top of the lamp, and this significantly disrupts the flow of the heavier wax. I have recombined them many times now, but this time I want a permanent fix. Is there anything I can add to the wax to create a stronger wax bond, or even something in the maser fluid to prevent the…Continue
One of the main issues I'm trying to address with my lamp builds is the wax appearance. Maybe with the newest batch of wax that I mixed with microcrystalline for the first time, maybe it won't be as much an issue, but I'm not convinced yet.Basically, unless I power the lamp on at 100% power (40W bulb), the wax looks mottled when it reaches the flowing stage. It looks pretty awful-almost like there's little bits of wax that never quite melted and got swept up in the flow. If I keep my lamps at…Continue
Helpful Hint.if you lose the spring from the globe when restoring it, you can always use stainless steel wire mesh screen. The bigger the mesh size, the betterYou can use a stainless steel sink strainer with the chrome edge removedOr stainless steel spring discAvailable HERE:…Continue
Hey you wonderful goo-loving sweeties! I just scored my first aristocrat off of ebay and am wondering if you could help me figure out a couple of things about it.
1. Is the base rare? It seems to have a more stretched out…Continue
