    Started by Jim in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by Jim yesterday. 19 Replies

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

    Started by Ouija in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Ouija Sep 15. 26 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

    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…
