    Cracked? A deja vu to occur?

    Started by Critter in Collecting. Last reply by kiramarie 6 hours ago. 17 Replies

    Gang,Maybe I am just a tad paranoid since the Colossus exploded last Dec.  But last night I fired up this Humungo for 5-6 hours before noticing a small....crack?.....scratch?  Well I needed to get a good look at it and it's difficult to see because it is 1/2" long at most.  It is low on the globe in the wide section of the globe.  You guys look at the pic please.  In the pic it looks more like a small surface scratch than a crack...but in person it picks up the light in a way that it looks like…Continue

    I won another Contest!!

    Started by Ian in Collecting. Last reply by Carol 7 hours ago. 6 Replies

    I won lavalite's contest they had on facebook to win a 52oz 50th Anniversary lamp! Pictures to come when the lamp actually arrives. Fingers crossed in that it gets here okay; I live in Tucson, Arizona and the outside temperatures in nearby Phoenix get well above 100 degrees.. Here in Tucson it gets up to the high 90s and low 100s. The last lamp they sent me was crystal clear and fine. I hope this one arrives clear..Continue

    Photography Fair

    Started by VOXul in Off Topic. Last reply by Carol 9 hours ago. 574 Replies

    So I thought... We have a great music thread, random topic thread and various lava/glitter/fiber/rain/plasma/wave/motion image threads. I think we need one to support general photography, unique images and moving pictures (e.g. gifs and other things that move). Maybe it will be a quiet thread maybe it will get rowdy. I could be talking to myself here! Post images that move you, excite you, make you laugh maybe even cry! Express with imagery!Continue

    Installing a new Dimmer in a Humungo/Colossus Base

    Started by Critter in Collecting. Last reply by Brad on Wednesday. 4 Replies

    After the Colossus explosion last December I was down a globe and had a base that would need a good cleaning up and new electrics.I had done a quick, kind of sad, clean up of the base after the incident and stored it away.  Luckily the base did not receive any dings, dents, scratches when the globe let loose but I definitely was concerned about the state of the dimmer after it was submerged in wax and water.  But really the 200 watt dimmer in these bases is inadequate in my opinion anyhow.…Continue
