    New to Oozing with my Grandma's Lamp

    Started by Christopher Cowan in General Goo. Last reply by Keith 21 hours ago. 6 Replies

    Hello! I'm pretty new to lava and oozing goo. I found this site after searching for information and tips on restoring a lamp I found at my wife's grandma's house this week. Who knew that lava lamps would be a rabbit hole I found myself sliding down. I brought it home, plugged it in and have been working on getting it flowing, it flows but things are still not quite right. I order a GooKit from Magma Towers this week and plan on swapping out the goo and water when that comes in. I think the…Continue

    Dead Goo

    Started by Sheryl Rosen in Collecting. Last reply by ash-hole! 23 hours ago. 3 Replies

    Hello! I’m new to this site and to goo kits but not to lava lites in general. I am trying to refurbish one of my 17” antiques (70s) with a goo kit. It didn’t  have instructions so I used the one provided on this site. The problem I’m having is that the wax won’t flow at all. It melts completely but just lays there on the bottom. This is my second try and I’d hate to waste any more wax. I’m on the second cycle with this second attempt and still having no luck. Help! ☹️Continue

    HTF Rabbit Tanaka Item

    Started by Harry Jacoby in Collecting yesterday. 0 Replies

    Does anyone have or know anything about an rare Rabbit Tanaka item called the Mini Orbiter? IDK if it counts as a lamp, but it is a motorized solar system. It appears in this video(https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5q7bqc) at 01:54, 14:45, 15:34, and 25:05. I know for a fact that the producer of that video got it at a Spencers in 1997.Continue

    Lamps For Sale - Preliminary List

    Started by Jim in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by MileHigh yesterday. 21 Replies

    I apologize about the delay, but as at least one of you knows, last week was a nightmare. The good news is that I passed my CMS audit last week. The better news... things are mellowing out and its time to move some lamps!There is one lamp/globe that I am seeking and that is a red/white 52 ounce US globe. Would prefer with a midnight Aristocrat base/cap, but will work with just the globe. You have this globe and its high quality, you are bumped up in the queue.Lamps come from a cigarette smoke…Continue

    Help! Mathmos bulbs?

    Started by Ouija in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Mark on Saturday. 27 Replies

    What bulbs do you guys use for your Mathmos Astros and Astrobabies? I was at my local Tesco and all the had was rather rubbish looking LED replacements... I left almost having a panic attack! I see on the Mathmos site they are now shipping Astros and Astrobabies with 2 pin halogen bulbs now? What does the future hold? I don't want to spend a fortune getting replacement bases. I really need bulbs for my babies!Continue

    All that Glitters is Gold

    Posted by Peter Piper on September 13, 2018 at 10:41pm 1 Comment

    Seems to me like the popular gold bases with the holes should of been glittered.  It didn't take long to paint, partlly because the Rust-Oleum spray nozzle stopped working after half the can maybe less.  But it was good enough and looked great…
