    Hurricanes and Lava Lamps

    Started by MacRanium in General Goo yesterday. 0 Replies

    Well my town is basically destroyed, hurricane Ian brought the hurt this time. I've been in Cape Coral FL for 30 years, since I was about 3 years of age... Andrew, Charlie, and Irma. Now Ian. The island I grew up on is gone, the bridges and beaches, gone... Most of us are struggling to put our lives back together here and we are doing our best to gain some sense of normalcy.. I am happy to say that my family and I are safe and I was able to locate the majority of my lava lite collection,…Continue

    Did you know why mathmos io is called io?

    Started by Arne in Collecting yesterday. 0 Replies

    Today I saw a documentary about planet Jupiter and it turned out that one of its moons is called io. It has more than 400 volcanos which makes it the object with the most volcanic activity in our solar system.I was quite surprised to find out about this, I was alway wondering about the meaning of this rather odd name.Continue

    Shed full of 90s lamps

    Started by MacRanium in General Goo. Last reply by MacRanium Sep 20. 16 Replies

    This weekend I am going to look at "an entire shed full of vintage lava lamps and parts." From the pictures I've already seen there are 3 or 4 large totes filled to the top with bases, globes, caps, etc. I saw 3 or 4 icon bases, numerous psychedelic swirl bases and caps and quite a few midnight series bases and tops. The garage is also full of lamps. The woman's father was a collector and she wants it all gone! I will post pics of everything when I get it all sorted out hopefully I'll be…Continue

I'm looking for a gearbox (that sits directly on top of the motor that drives the colour change disk) for a Crestworth Galaxy, one the cogs in mine has gone brittle and snapped. I'll take a whole motor / gearbox assembly if preference is not to separate. I'm based in the UK but happy to buy from abroad; please let me know what you have and cost.Thanks!Continue
