    A really rare sight

    Started by Modulo '70 in Collecting. Last reply by jonny p 4 hours ago. 1 Reply

    I’ve never seen a Crestworth lamp box (Astro Mini) of any kind on tv before and may never see one again so I’m glad I took a snap of one recently seen on tv here in the U.K. The program was about an auction house set up in Yorkshire northern England. They do house clearances and auctions.Continue

    2nd Nov new lamp launch

    Started by Noz in Collecting. Last reply by Paul yesterday. 152 Replies

    A completely new lamp is being launched on the 2nd Nov. Can't link the picture sorry. Won't let me.But looks die cast, and possibly looking at the curvature it might be taking an astro bottle. And first 100 out the window. Now a lottery of all the orders placed on the same day. Seems irrelevant to still call it first 100 when it isn't. What are your thoughts on what it might be? Continue

    I finally snagged a #21

    Started by MacRanium in Collecting. Last reply by MacRanium on Wednesday. 3 Replies

    I stumbled across one of my bucket list globes on Facebook marketplace a #21 red wax purple liquid silver streak edition. Got it for an amazing price from a nice old hippy lady in the older part of town. The spring is broken and sticks up a bit but it flows fine and the wax shrouds the spring so when it's fully flowing you don't see it, I plan on fixing it this weekend but otherwise super happy to have this color combo it's one of my favorites Continue

    Bubble clock

    Started by Jsmooth in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Jsmooth on Wednesday. 2 Replies

    Hello again lava lovers,Please see the attached video for an example of the problem I am having. I have the same problem with a couple of lamps and wondered if maybe this is a sign of a bad coil? A single bubble shoots up out of nowhere and sticks at the top with some of the wax that comes with it. You could time the bubble coming up from the bottom- it’s fairly frequent. Almost like a hiccup or something. Do you suppose it’s a coil that has a tiny area that the wax has not taken a liking…Continue

    Do you have experience with liquid wax dye?

    Started by Mark Golebiowski in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Kyle S on Tuesday. 1 Reply

    I want to change the color of the wax in my grande lamp. I have liquid wax dye. Since the dye is an oil, I am afraid if I add a lot of dye to make a rich or a dark color, it will thin out the wax and make it too “oily” and disrupt the balance between water and wax. Have you tried liquid wax dye? What was your experience?Continue

    Mathmos are having a sale.

    Started by Noz in Collecting. Last reply by Lava_Head_UK Nov 25. 2 Replies

    Yes you can get 20% off if you buy 2 neon colored Neo lamps or 20% off any  2 io lamps. Wowwy wee I'm bowled over. Not. How to get rid of excess lamps that nobody wants? How about a proper sale. Like a free bottle with any lamp purchased. Or 20% off any 2 lamps. Not just the stuff you want rid of. Please stop insulting our intelligence. Continue

    Grande 100w replacement bulb

    Started by Mark Golebiowski in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Galaxy_9 Nov 21. 2 Replies

    Hi Everyone,I have always replaced my Grande bulbs with the clear 100w reflector bulbs, which are expensive.I noticed that you can get frosted ones for much cheaper. I was under the impression that the clear reflector bulbs concentrate the heat better and the frosted ones wouldn't work. But I saw this online. Take a look at the circled comments in the screenshot attached. Has anyone used these frosted bulbs? Is there a difference? Does the light they cast look different?Continue

    It's tragic, I first made a profile here forever ago, intending to dive right into the lava community after falling in love with my new neon pink Heritage Grande. Unfortunately, that lamp stopped flowing completely not long after I got it... I…
