    Hi there, I'm looking for for yellow MT goo/wax dye. Can't afford to pay MT shipping for just a bit of dye, so I'm hoping someone in the UK or EU might have some spare that I can buy from them? Thanks KateContinue

    Imperial Restoration - Glass Specs

    Started by Mike in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Critter 11 hours ago. 2 Replies

    Hey everyone, I am currently working on my imperial restoration and accidently cracked the glass on the cylinder. I am working with a company to rebuild me another glass cylinder. Does anyone have any specs on the OD/ ID of the glass used? I know there is one or 2 that have done the restoration on here but I figured I would reach out to see. Hope everyone is doing well. …Continue

    Hey everyone. So I have a 17" clearview lava lamp and it hasn't flowed right since I got it. I feel like it's not getting hot enough. Here is a picture. I'm using a r39 25 watt bulb. The same one that came with it. Any thoughts?Continue

    What's the best way to de-bubble wax?

    Started by pspees in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Michael Eskin yesterday. 21 Replies

    I have a lamp that I bought off of ebay about a month ago. When it arrived the wax looked as if it had been shipped hot. Ever since the fluid has cleared up but the wax is extremely bubbly. It seems to get better with time but then it will get worse again. I was wondering what causes this (the bubbles) and what would be the best remedy? Thanks for your input!!

    Hi Guys, I am new to the site and am desperate to find a Smart Astro. I am currently collecting the parts to try and build one myself but I would also love to have to have the real thing.

I was about 15 and I so wish I kept it as I would love to have it now. Would be up for part swap etc, I have a white Fluidium, A copper Crestworth lantern…Continue

    Lava not flowing

    Started by neo in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Eric Johnson on Saturday. 4 Replies

    I have a lava lamp century model that is at least 10 years old. Lately it seems the lava doesn't flow properly it just sits in the bottom. I have read other posts about people changing the liquid/wax/coil but I have never attempted to perform surgery on a lava lamp. I'm not an expert but the century model seems to be a more rare model so I want to avoid messing with it too much if possible. In the past it has acted like this before occasionally and I would just turn it off when the lava stops…Continue
