    Mathmos Astro Baby too bright

    Started by Nova in Problems & Questions. Last reply by LampHead 1 hour ago. 5 Replies

    I purchased a Mathmos Astro Baby Blue/Yellow this week, and it's very pretty.https://mathmos.com/product/astro-baby-lava-lamp-silver/However, I'm finding that the area where the yellow lava sits at the bottom is really bright from the bulb, and it sort of distracts from the rest of the lava.It comes with a Mathmos 28W GU10 bulb, I was wondering if it's safe to swap that out for a lower wattage bulb and/or use a plug-in…Continue

    Building a 4' Tower Lamp - advice welcome

    Started by Todd in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by Todd yesterday. 54 Replies

    Greetings!   I've made some progress on my 4' tall tower lava lamp project.  The base is done, glass vase obtained (nice thick walls), and coupling is done - very secure.   I'm getting ready to mount the 200W spot light (on a dimmer - we will be going at this slowly) in the base and am looking for advice on space between the top of the bulb and the bottom of the glass floor.  In my Magma 3' tower the space is less than 1/2", but that's a pro built lamp with the special low expansion glass, and…Continue

    Need help rewiring an Excalibur for the US!

    Started by Loren in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Claude J on Monday. 5 Replies

    I bought this from Marcel several years ago, and I've never been able to A) find another globe (glitter) or B) get this lamp to flow on US wiring, even using an adapter. I'm fairly sure I could get some glitter flowing - maybe not flowing very quickly, but I think I could get some motion out of it. It has a 60watt reflector bulb, just like a regular US…Continue

    Replacement Screw Cap plans for 60-70's lamp upload

    Started by Duane K in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Loren Mar 17. 69 Replies

    Hello all, first time here.I have an old lamp that was my grandma's and I'm a little sentimental about it.  It must be early 70's minimum because I remember it as a child.  I'm sure you all can probably identify it and that might help what I'm trying to do here.  A few years ago the cap cracked, it got cloudy and didn't work good anymore.  I'm in the process of trying to restore it, using the lava formula I found here.  I was about to say goodbye to it because I could not find a replacement…Continue

    Bubble Elimination

    Started by Jsmooth in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Arne Mar 17. 6 Replies

    So I’ve been on a quest to figure out why master fluid bubbles form in wax. It’s been a long road but thanks to some other posts here on OG, I think I’ve found a decent solution to fix the problem.A year or so ago I made a post about how white vinegar helps eliminate master fluid bubbles. After experimenting with that on a couple of lamps, I found that vinegar raises the ph of the master fluid and does indeed decrease the amount of bubbles in wax. Cool, but using too much vinegar cancels out…Continue
