    Collectors and first 100 important announcement.

    Started by Jezza in Collecting. Last reply by MonsoonStorm on Monday. 32 Replies

    On the Mathmos Blog, there's an important information notice about future first 100 releases. Anyone wishing to collect a first 100 lamp should read this first before buying. It looks like the UK gets half and Germany gets half of all new first 100 lamps. Personally, i think this is wrong as Mathmos is a UK company therefore we, sorry WE, should get first divvies. Yes here in the UK. However, I am looking forward to some new finishes and some new models too. But have practically given up on…Continue

    Has anyone ever tried making a lava lamp out of a glass soda bottle?

    Started by Abby lol in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Tevfik Dogruman on Sunday. 2 Replies

    I have this really cool idea for a lava lamp but I'm unsure if it would work because I would want to use a glass soda bottle for the design.Continue

    Hello! im back havent been on this site in a while and iv decided to sell my Geyser Lamp I never use it and I know there are people that would enjoy it more than I do.

    Started by Paul in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Paul Sep 7. 3 Replies

    Hi AllAll of my GU10 Telstars have stuck bulbs, has anyone else had this issue? I've tried litrally everything. Sometimes they get stuck stright away, sometimes I can change the bulb once or twice before thet get stuck in the base. I've seen a couple of reviews on Amazon saying the same so I guess it happens but all of mine are useless at the moment :(. Thanks for any help! Continue

    Sticking wax solution?

    Started by lampfancy in Problems & Questions. Last reply by lampfancy Sep 5. 20 Replies

    I posted about this a while back but the trail has gone a bit cold, so to speak.Just wondered if anyone had any success in finding a ‘hands on’ approach to solving the sticking wax issue that seems to be a quite a common defect on newer Mathmos bottles, since I still have a couple of (non returnable) bottles which have this issue.

Was contemplating re-filling them using a goo/glitter kit, but with the prohibitive the cost of getting these in the UK now this is probably no longer an…Continue

    Flowing column potential fix?

    Started by Kyle S in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Marco Pulone Sep 4. 5 Replies

    Hi all,I have a century that likes to only flow in a column. No matter how long it stays turned on, we only see that unbreakable column flow.I was wondering if replacing the liquid in this century with different liquid from another USA lamp would change the flow considering the possibly different formula makeup there? Or is the column flow only a wax issue? Any help would be highly appreciated to break the damn thing!(For reference, the century is a 90's lamp and the replacement liquid would…Continue

    Goo Kit Supplies

    Started by Jim in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by Jarrad Cuff Sep 3. 14 Replies

    Good morning fellow lava lovers, I have about four boxes of Goo Kit supplies. Tubes, funnels, brushes, etc. I also have a number of quarts of Goo base, some partial, some seemingly full, but all have been in storage for several years. Not knowing the shelf life of MagmaTower Goo, I can't say whether its still good or not.Please reply to this thread or shoot me a message. If there is interest, I'll take a full accounting of what's there and we can discuss how to make it yours.Please note that I…Continue
