    Fastest way to get Astro/Astro Baby flowing US

    Started by i0nz in Problems & Questions. Last reply by i0nz 8 hours ago. 8 Replies

    I just received the two Mathmos lamps below and I'd like to get them flowing today. I live in Salt Lake City, UT and was curious if anybody knew of a store which would likely have the necessary converter needed? I've searched a bit online but I'm not seeing anything available nearby and it appears that the soonest I could receive the $30 converter off of Amazon would be Monday. All of the bases have 3 prong plugs.Any tips or pointers are greatly appreciated. …Continue

    I have a pink and a green of the Heritage Grandes. I have a clear yellow Grande globe I display with the two Heritages. My OCD would like the bases to match. I would buy a complete Heritage Grande or just the base if anybody is looking to purge :)Continue

    What USA bulb to use in a stock Mathmos Astro Baby

    Started by Bill Baylor in Problems & Questions on Sunday. 0 Replies

    Hi, I just ordered my first Mathmos lamp for here in the USA. Its an Astro Baby lamp and im wondering what bulb I could buy here that would work in it without having to change all the internals. I know I could buy a step up voltage converter but I would much rather just change the bulb to work with 110. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks!Continue

    I got an email today in my personal email from a "supposedly" member named Frank Kwabena saying he needs me to contact him about something and that he left a message on my Oozing Goo wall.  I thought this to be strange as new members do not send emails like to to members so I did a little research.  Turns out it is a VIRUS!!! DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL!!!!  I WILL BE NOTIFYING THE MODS OF THIS JUST IN CASE THEY WANT TO ALSO POST A WARNING UP!!!P.S.  The weird thing is he goes through social…Continue

    WTB century base

    Started by jeff in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by Blind Faith on Saturday. 9 Replies

    Hi fellow lava heads!Been lurking here for a while as I built my collection up, but finally needed to post as I'm looking for a part. I recently picked up a slightly pre-90's (I think) century off of craigslist. It's in good shape overall, and looks good from the outside. But the base, specifically the bottom plate that's steel, is rusted badly. It doesn't effect the function of the lamp, for now, but it might eventually given that the bulb mounts to the rusted plate and might fail at some…Continue

    I live in the United States and bought my Mathmos Lave Lamp from a re-seller on eBay, as Mathmos UK will not sell their products including replacement bulbs to anyone outside the UK.

The description from the Mathmos UK site is: "35W - Astro Lava lam- - Screw fitting halogen bulb - Replacement 35W e14 SES screw fitting bulb for Astro lava…Continue

    20 y.o. Grande Ain't What it Used to Be...

    Started by D. Carney in Problems & Questions. Last reply by D. Carney Nov 26. 6 Replies

    Hi all!I joined this forum after researching what to do about my 20 year old Grande just not performing like it used to.It's red wax/clear liquid. The liquid has taken on a little of the red (still clear though) and the wax just doesn't flow like it used to. It sends up small blobs, but the big blobs no longer appear.I've tried relocating, new/different bulbs to no avail.I just got a new Grande (red/yellow) and that one performs normally in the same spot.I'm looking at the Goo Kits at…Continue
