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
For the Crestworth fans out there: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2532080923478883/Disclaimer: I don't know one fiber optic from another; I could be totally off-base. Then again, this could be a tasty little treasure to the right collector.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
Hi everyoneFairly new collector here and I would like to add a Spencer's Limited Edition Zombie lamp to my collection. I was wondering if someone has one that they would like to part with at a good price. I know this lamp was available back in 2016 and was produced in limited quantities.The only place I saw one for sale was on ebay and the seller wants $500 for it. No thanks!!!Continue
On the latest Mathmos blog, they say they are releasing a new lamp in the autumn. What are your thoughts? Do any of you have any information? I am hoping that it's a larger lamp like the lunar, but knowing Mathmos it will be another Neo variant or use the astro bottle. Let's at least hope we get some new interesting colourways as the current range is getting a bit stagnant now. Continue
Hi! I'm new to this group, but just managed to get my hands on a vintage Fantasia 4000 Sunburst Chrome lamp - minus the fiber optic spray. I know finding them is really hit or miss, but can one be fabricated from the safer new plastic fiber optic cables? Are there any directions on how to make one or is anyone making these at all? I am pretty good craftwise, but this is a new direction and I'd rather not reinvent the wheel...Continue
Recently rescued a Mk1 Astro that no longer has its original cable or the grey/white grommet/cable holder that feeds the cable into the base; and the round inline switch is missing too...this could have been white or grey.I'd like to restore as best I can - does anyone know where I can source these items, please? The wire is white, with R/B/G codingThanksContinue
I recently bought out the estate of a collector that passed away. I am in the process of remodeling my house so I'm looking to sell them all together if possible. Shipping/pick up would be the responsibility of the buyer. This is an awesome collection and the potential for serious profit is there for someone who has the knowledge/time. Here's what is included:Collosus:I have seven globes and 12 bases. Globe colors are purple with red (3), blue with yellow, clear with red, purple with yellow…Continue
