This is a French glitter/sequin lamp.The fluid has lost its density so it needs be opened.It appears to be the standard bottle with cap, but the lid appears to be attached to the cap somehow and it's absolutely solid.I've soaked it upside down in hot soapy water, sprayed WD40 oil inside, given the rim a tap with a wooden flat edge and hammer, and heated every area of it with a hair dryer, and still can't get it to budge!My hands have now got blisters through trying lol so any other suggestions…Continue
Hey All,See video at end of this post.So first things first, the #121D lamp I got a week or so ago, the colors are really beautiful in person. The problem is that even with switching out bulbs the lamp makes one column for hours (of course it pulsates as lava goes up and down) but rarely if ever breaks up. The columns mass always stays towards the top of the bottle. What causes this and is there a solution?Now onto last weekends find which I forgot to post about. An absolutely mint #12 swirl…Continue
High Folks,after reading nearly the whole lava talk archive of oozinggoo in the last couple of weeks, I now signed in to get into touch with the oozers here and exchange tips and tricks.My name is Peter Konrad, I am from Hamburg, living in Berlin, and I have been a Lavalamp buff and experimentator for a while now. I am proud owner of 8 Astros, 2 Astro Babies, 2 Jets and 6 Haggerty Lamps (plus a couple of no-name cheapos), and the collection will grow. I dream of an Astro rainbow for my chillout…Continue
Not sure if any of you have a closing Kmart store near you, but I stopped into one of my local Kmarts that has begun liquidation and found this haul! It's almost as if the liquidator brought in Lava Lite product Kmart hadn't been carrying. I'd never seen anything larger than 20 oz lamps at Kmart. They had 52 oz lamps, a few 32 oz models, clearview lamps and the best surprise... 80 oz Royale lamps marked at 25.00 before an additional 20% off! Naturally, my curiosity got the best of me and I am…Continue
Hi people, just purchased a green fluidium and immediately struck by how lime the case and wax is ! On inspection, find this has a modified 2 pin plug fitted - original, making it a non UK model. Question is, did Mathmos use different greens depending on market ? Item is the later bold logo mark 2 model.Thoughts please.Continue
Probably a question for FogRider.... I finally was able to remove the cap from my Imperial (boiling water did the trick, FogRider was right) and im ready to begin my restoration on it. The question I have is did yours have the rubber belt in the wax with the spring ?? It looks like a small fanbelt from a car and its in the center of the wax in a horseshoe pattern with the spring around the outer edge of the cylinder. I have never heard anyone talk of this rubber belt. Im leaving it in, but…Continue
