    A New Source of Goo Kits

    Started by k-nano in General Goo. Last reply by Claude J 6 minutes ago. 17 Replies

    It's come to my attention that Magma Tower isn't sourcing goo anymore and I am looking into sourcing it myself to potentially fill the void. The only thing is there will likely be a fairly large minimum order quantity from the manufacturer. Therefore, I'm looking to get an idea of just how interested the community is in purchasing goo to refurbish their lava lamps. If I could get those looking to buy goo to reply to this post and give me an idea of just how much goo your currently interested in…Continue

    Topic says it all. I've tried everything but it's a pain. Even bottle brushes just don't really get the job done because of the angle required. Any suggestions or experiences? Thanks fellow goo heads!Continue

    Donald Dunnet - Original Lava Lamp Inventor - Prototypes, Construction details & History.

    Started by Charlie Leverett in General Goo. Last reply by Ian yesterday. 21 Replies

    Hi,Hopefully with this post I can provide a comprehensive background on the story of Donald and his invention. Donald was my great grandfather and between my father and aunt we have tried to piece together the history of his involvement with the lava lamp. I have thoroughly researched the internet for any mention of him but unfortunately most of it is either vague, incomplete or inaccurate as he is often incorrectly named as 'Alfred Dunnett'. However we did come across some facts that we were…Continue

    Collectors and first 100 important announcement.

    Started by Jezza in Collecting. Last reply by MonsoonStorm yesterday. 75 Replies

    On the Mathmos Blog, there's an important information notice about future first 100 releases. Anyone wishing to collect a first 100 lamp should read this first before buying. It looks like the UK gets half and Germany gets half of all new first 100 lamps. Personally, i think this is wrong as Mathmos is a UK company therefore we, sorry WE, should get first divvies. Yes here in the UK. However, I am looking forward to some new finishes and some new models too. But have practically given up on…Continue

    Unfortunately my dimmer switch on my colossus is no longer working. It was always finicky, but recently stopped working all together. Has anyone replaced their dimmer switch? If yes, can you send me the website and part number you used?
