    It's hip to be square - DIY Square block lava lamp build

    Started by Mattgyver92 in General Goo. Last reply by Mattgyver92 on Wednesday. 8 Replies

    Well that worked.Recipe is close to a 65% distilled water 30% propylene glycol 5% glycerin mix. Wax is paraffin, liquid paraffin, TCE.Glass 'craft' block has a rectangular opening at the top which required a custom acrylic/rubber plug seal. Stand is temporary until I can design molds for a cast concrete form that I like. Currently it's made of scrap ply and some aluminum foil for a reflector. 40W bulb.Metal coil is three extension springs overstretched and attached end to end with some…Continue

    Need to rebuild my lamp

    Started by JAMES BENINI in Collecting. Last reply by Claude J on Tuesday. 12 Replies

    IMG_2196.JPGGreetings all, I'm a newbie at this, tried to do the saltwater/one drop of dish soap trick to clean up my lamp, and this happened. At this point I think I just need to start over with new wax and liquid, but the price to do that is more than a new lamp (granted it's an import) Since this is an import lamp, what would you do? Rebuild, sell for parts, or...?…Continue

    Lava Wave Machine.

    Started by Bill Smith in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by Thomas Austin on Tuesday. 3 Replies

    I am looking to buy a wave machine, the ultimate one would be Gaint Pacifica or the Atlantis model.I know these are quite rare so maybe a Caribean or the Adriatic model.They must be in good condition with everything working correctly including the wave fluid etc., becauseI live in the UK and have no way of getting them repaired if they are faulty.Hughes wave machines used to sell his "Model One" wave motion machine but it seems theyare no longer available.So if anybody has one that they would…Continue

    What tha stuck!?

    Started by Jsmooth in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Claude J on Monday. 9 Replies

    So, I have a lamp that I replaced the master fluid in, I’ve used 70% h20 and 30%P.G. I coated the globe with a good 50/50 mix of SLS, poured that out, dropped the coil in, and funneled the warm wax into the globe as per usual. It looked nice and clean and ready to be awesome. I let the wax cool completely at the bottom and then funneled my h20/P.G. Mix in and the wax is sticking to the sides as if I hadn’t used anything to coat the globe. Also the wax seems reluctant to move upwards but when it…Continue

    Mottled Wax & Corrosion Issues

    Started by Mattgyver92 in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Claude J on Monday. 4 Replies

    One of the main issues I'm trying to address with my lamp builds is the wax appearance. Maybe with the newest batch of wax that I mixed with microcrystalline for the first time, maybe it won't be as much an issue, but I'm not convinced yet.Basically, unless I power the lamp on at 100% power (40W bulb), the wax looks mottled when it reaches the flowing stage. It looks pretty awful-almost like there's little bits of wax that never quite melted and got swept up in the flow. If I keep my lamps at…Continue
