Hi guys. Not sure how active this site is anymore but i would like to investigate the possibilities for upgrading my Mathmos Lunar with fresh water and wax as the old water is faded and the wax looks a little strange. First off, where will i find the stuff to replace the wax and water in the bottle? second. I have been playing with the idea of putting in white wax and clear water and the instead of a normal bulb, the install an LED ring + a heating lamp that don´t emits any light but only heat…Continue
I know it seems counterintuitive, but I have a lamp with white wax and clear fluid that I would like to light from the back with RGB LED lights instead. The lightbulb inside is pretty bright, but I need it to warm the globe to make the lava flow. If I were to add the RGB lighting behind it, the existing light coming from the lamp would cancel out the coloured lighting. Is there any way to make my existing bulb dimmer while still having it function properly as a warmer?Continue
I am selling two Crestworth Rocket lamps for $600 plus shipping costs.They are both in very nice conditon and come with 2 extra bottles and two extra bulbs.It should be noted that all 4 bottles are refills and one of the bottles is actually a Fantasia bottle however it's the same size as a Jet bottle so it fits in the Rocket base fine.…Continue
Hello - Just a bit of an appeal for information for anyone who has experience of lamp bottle ‘transplants’ (particularly Mathmos)Have never been much of a 'tamperer', but having recently received a couple of fairly disappointing Astro bottles, I thought I might attempt to salvage the situation a bit by looking at them as potential ‘candidates’ for a fluid swap In theory this should be straightforward enough, but having never attempted attempted it before am a bit nervous about it, just…Continue
This was the lamp I posted the other day. The bulb it came with wasn't heating enough to get it to flow so i bought a new one at the store. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peBeOKfn2xAI keep comparing to my mathmos that I think has a good flow https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBnT3JDpJxwShould I fix it or is it fine as is? I enjoy the constant motion and blob variety of my mathmos…Continue
In my quest to figure out exactly what the original formula is, one thing I haven't figured out is why they used Kerosene in the mixture. It seems like it was a very small part of the mixture, something like 7% by volume.But what was the point? Did it act as a preservative, or enhance the flow, or help to bind everything together?Speculations?Continue
So I bought an MSR filter a while back to filter out my lamps. It wasn't working for me. It kept on getting clogged, and I was filtering Grande, so you can imagine how annoying it was to stop and have to clean it out every 500ml. So recently I purchased a Büchner funnel filtration kit to do my filtering for my other lamps. I want to clean out the MSR, so I can use it when I go hiking. So does anyone know how to clean it out to get it back to water consumption use? Would it be advisable to even…Continue
....Would this be the correct forum to post this in? I have a small elephant rain lamp that won't flow all the way around or for very long. When started you can hear the pump, and the oil begins to flow, but on only about half the strings. Then the flow slows to almost nothing. It worked great for the first two years I had it.Continue
The only thing that sucks is the cap is broken. They tried to fix it by gluing the screw on cap to the…Continue
