Well, while I'm waiting for my goo kit, I was going to try experimenting with changing the water in my 52 oz purple neon. The wax is ok, but the water is really super hazy as you know. I've been searching around on here a bit, but I cannot find the thread that I read when I first joined on changing up the water. Anyone??Continue
Hey, All! I've got a bunch of NOS 20 oz. (i.e. 14.5") and 12 oz. (i.e. 11.5") Lava-brand STARDUST GLITTER lamps for sale! These are the MADE IN CHINA STARDUST GLITTER lamps that were discontinued a couple years back. They are all CLEAR GLITTER. Each one has been opened to check for clarity and they are all 100% crystal clear! Make me an offer on one or all of them. I think I have about 10 of the 20 oz. lamps and about 20 of the 12 oz. lamps. I'll be traveling from Canada to the USA on…Continue
I've been wanting to expand my plasma collection and a few choice items came up recently. I was able to score 3 out of 4 of the ones I wanted, this is the first to arrive. This is the original plasma dome reportedly designed by Larry Albright and made and sold by Rabbit Systems. Radio Shack/Realistic has a version very much like it that came out later.The most recent plasmapalooza consists of this plasma dome a White Lightning (which came in it's original box), an actual Larry Albright…Continue
Ok, I think I've read though just about everything there is on here about the goo kits and regoo'ing, but I haven't come across anything that says how or what to use to get the water colored. I know I have read that in lamps where the water has faded members use food coloring. Is this what is used and how much is generally used? I guess you just add a few drops at a time until the liquid is the color you want? What is the best brand to use or does it not matter?Continue
i just wanted to pass on something that works very well for fixing globes that shoot small globes, or "pea shooters" as they are referred to on this site.heat the globe up until it flows, then cut the power down with a dimmer until the wax stays in a liquid state at the bottom. it may start to release a few small globes from time to time, but that is ok. let it simmer for 24h.after 24h, let the globe cool, then turn it back on and check the flow.this method has worked for me 2 times now -…Continue
Hey guys it's sad to inform you that I will listing my crestworth and satalite lamps on eBay including my galaxy also due to recently becoming unemployed :( I will post pics of them on here for you, if anyone is interested, let me know and maybe we can strike a deal. It going to be a emotional week. Cheers all
So you want to change your lamp from clear fluid (or faded fluid) to a nice color that pops! Food coloring does a fine job but here is a method that I have heard about, but I don't remember anyone actually showing it being done. What is this method you ask?Highlighter pen ink!Water-soluble colors in a nice selection of bright neon colors. But does it work, and does it match? Well short answer is yes it does, long answer will take some time. Hey, I just colored it yesterday! I don't know…Continue
Weebotech (Rob) has lost nearly everything due to Hurricane Sandy. :( House, car, all of it... wrecked. Rob has been an amazing friend and acquaintance to many of us here. I can personally attest to his caring nature and kind spirit. Many of those (including Rob) will not have any sort of financial help from insurance as this was a flood, and people don't tend to carry flood insurance when you live in a place that doesn't flood. I'm going to keep this short and add details as I know them, but…Continue
I've had a remarkable year where Lava Lamps are concerned. I had been looking for an Imperial for a good while and thinking I might never find one. Sure, I knew where there are five or so, but they are in the hands of people who love them. I…Continue
I finally got to the hardware store. I purchased a cord with a socket attached and came to find no 40 watt bulbs fit the size socket said cord came stock with. Branching out of my comfort zone, I bought a ceramic light mounting base and decided…Continue
