I'm probably in the wrong forum but this is the closest I can find to resolve my issue. I have an old Simplex Lava Corp. wave machine that had been dormant for years. It refuses to return to the cam wheel regardless of the 'long' end being placed correctly. If I manually "assist" it the cam attempts to push the vessel off the base laterally. If I'm at the wrong place could you please direct me to someone who might be able to help? The only places Google gives me are "repair shops", tutorials on…Continue

Hi all, I have cleaned out two lava lamps and am starting anew. I have bought some wax and some dye off Ebay and need to know what else apart from distilled water and salt I need to add to get things moving (literally). I tried to add a photo but it is too big to upload. Another question, I have a copper base/top lamp and the wax is runny, anyone know why? as the other two were solid wax I had to melt to get out of the lamps. Thanks in advance for any help given.Continue
I have a lamp that I bought off of ebay about a month ago. When it arrived the wax looked as if it had been shipped hot. Ever since the fluid has cleared up but the wax is extremely bubbly. It seems to get better with time but then it will get worse again. I was wondering what causes this (the bubbles) and what would be the best remedy? Thanks for your input!!
