    Brand new batch of Fantasia Cosmos 2 lamps for sale soon

    Started by jmpenny32 in Collecting. Last reply by Robert Israel 53 minutes ago. 19 Replies

    Well, never did i think after building the first Fantasia Cosmos 2 lamp that I would not only regret that sale but also the amount of requests I have gotten over the past few years from multiple sources to please build more. So I decided to invest in the project and have a whole new batch built, each one by me right here in my home, (4 total). My inspiration and motivation to build even the first one came from the endless hunt for a Cosmos lamp only to miss out on every opportunity that came my…Continue

    Trying to crack the original formula- why was kerosene used?

    Started by Ant Bee in General Goo. Last reply by Tevfik Dogruman 14 hours ago. 70 Replies

    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

    Water bath treatment to remove wax build up on glass

    Started by Michael Strong in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Susan 18 hours ago. 8 Replies

    Hey everyone, so I watched a Mathmos documentary, and they showed a part of the manufacturing process after everything was bottled up where they submerge the bottled in hot water to separate the liquids and remove wax sticking from the glass. So I have a bottle that has this issue, and I  was wondering if anyone knew the temperature they heated the bottles up in that water treatment process.Continue

    What makes two identical plasma globes so much different?

    Started by Arne in Collecting. Last reply by WARLOCK OF GOO! yesterday. 2 Replies

    So by the draw of the luck I ran across a second plasma globe of the same kind but when I plugged it in I was rather surprised to see that they are very different. As they are not the youngest I decided to replace all the electrolytic caps for new ones and I used exactly the same values and brands on both but they are still the same after recapping...I could evaluate further and intervhange globes etc but I'm a bit lazy so maybe someone can tell me what it is that makes them so different?…Continue

    Help on dating this old Century

    Started by The Dude in Collecting. Last reply by LampHead yesterday. 2 Replies

    The cord had no switch and the wiring was shoddy on the inside, so the cord was not original - can't use it to date it. The strain relief was not correct, and can't be used to date it.The cord exits very close to the base, which appears the same as early century types.The base is 2 piece, so that makes it an early version.No stickers under the cap.…Continue

    Schylling and Lava Lamp's Future

    Started by Ryan in General Goo. Last reply by Ant Bee yesterday. 9 Replies

    I haven't posted here in quite some time, so I apologize if this has already been discussed. Is it just me or does it seem like Schylling is running Lava Lamp into the ground? The Lava Lamp website shows pretty much every product out of stock. I see that Schylling offers some lava lamps on their website, but the selection isn't that big. Moreover, Spencer's isn't offering many lava lamp selections on their website either. I would love to hear more input on this.Continue
