    Hello

    Started by Ed Groves in Collecting. Last reply by Mark 9 hours ago. 12 Replies

    Hello, I’m pleased to be a member of this group. I have a collection of 16 lava lamps and other, later, Mathmos items. I need a replacement sbc bulb for an Astro Baby that is marked max 35 watt but can only find small globe sbc at 40 watts, as these aren’t reflector (I assume therefore, they generate a little less direct heat) would that be ok to use? Also, one of my Mathmos tubas has developed an intermittent fault and doesn’t cycle - I know it’s not a lava lamp but hoped someone could advise…Continue

    Looking for a Consort globe

    Started by Autumn in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by Mr MaGoo 10 hours ago. 1 Reply

    While cleaning I knocked over one of my Consort lamps and broke the globe. Does anyone have a globe they would be willing to part with? I don't need the rest of the lamp. I don't even need a cap.Continue

    16.3 inch from amazon

    Started by John H in General Goo. Last reply by kero48 14 hours ago. 9 Replies

    I finally got a lamp larger than 14 inches! Woohoo! It looks great... Sort of. The water is slightly hazy but it seems to be settling down which is reassuring. Also, the water level seems to be a little low which I hate but it hasn't heated up yet so I'm not that annoyed by it.Anyways, this thing is huge. I know I probably sound rediculous as many of you have grandes or even the colossus lamp, but remember I'm used to the 14.6 inch lamps. I'll keep this post updated if the lamp ever clears up.…Continue

    Do I have what I hope I have? Globe 01 - Clear/White

    Started by Erin in Collecting. Last reply by Erin 14 hours ago. 2 Replies

    I got this on eBay last week. I saw it and though "oh, another faded 03", but then looked at the pics and noticed that it didn't have any cap code. Then I came back on OG to see what I could find out about the elusive 01 globe. A post by Lamphead said that the the 01 globes did not have any markings on the top.I'm running it right now, and the wax has separated, so I might have to open it up and take out some liquid to get all the wax back together. Thoughts? …Continue

    The lava still flows (Colossus Gookit)

    Started by Autumn in General Goo. Last reply by Claude J yesterday. 27 Replies

    Hey everyone! Long time no see. So I have had a Colossus sitting empty in my house for a few years now after it wouldn't flow when I put a Gookit in it. I finally decided it was a shame to keep it in its sorry state. For a quick recap of the original project you can check out this uploaded picture and read the comments.…Continue

    Clear/White Aristocrat

    Started by JJ in Collecting. Last reply by kero48 yesterday. 4 Replies

    Hi. I have been looking trying to research this lamp I have. I believe it is a Aristocrat #01 clear/white. The person I got it from said it was old and they had it for ever but did not know anything about it as it was her husbands who passed away and she never asked. I was hoping to get any info on it, rarity, value ect. Thanks in advance!Continue

    Hello Everyone!

    Hello all! I would like to use my very first post to introduce myself to everyone here! My name is John, a Canuck with an interest in lava lamps.I've looked through this forum quite a bit, and firstly, all of your lamps look beautiful and your collections are amazing! Unfortunately my Lamp collection is quite sad. I have 3 lamps in total, all from lava lite (Chinese models... ugh) that perform "meh". They're interesting nonetheless and I cannot wait to get my hands on them and make them flow…Continue

    Hi Everybody !  Recently i made this lamp with a home made globe and ceramic foot. Tank is roughly 80oz or 2,4L .Filled with Goo Kit. After a few runs (in this picture with a 100W bulb) i get this blob that is stuck at the top. And the rest of the wax flowing rather slow. Can anybody tell what could maybe be the problem ? Since everything is homemade i understand its pretty difficult to say what could be wrong exactly.  hope anybody can help.thanks .…Continue

    F/S - Mint Black Lava Lamp Century - ready for either lava or glitter

    Started by kero48 in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by kero48 on Sunday. 2 Replies

    I am selling my mint lava lamp black century. The only thing this lamps needs is either lava or glitter. I will include a coil with the lamp.There is no damage of any kind to the base and or bottle. Base is in superb condition. Bottle has no cracks or damage. Bottle cap and gasket are in great shape. Bottle is ultra clean inside.I am focusing on larger lamps now due to my lack of space (will probably just keep 2 grandes and 1 or two royals, that's it) so my smaller lamps are going to be sold.I…Continue
