I recently bought a used 30" tall cylinder type lava lamp. The bulb didn't work. I didn't think it would be a problem to find a replacement, but it has proved to be just that. I can't find one with a clear bulb. The first thing I found was the same kind with a frosted bulb. The lava rose about 6 inches and then just sat on the bottom of the tube, barely moving. Not enough heat, I guess. I've tried other clear bulbs, somebody suggested a 40 watt microwave oven bulb, someone else a 40 watt high intensity appliance bulb, etc. None of them has worked. Anybody know where I can get one - 120V 60Hz 40 watt type R14 Intermediate base Clear Flood Light bulb? I'd sure appreciate it. I have a real nice lamp I can't use right now.
I thought i saw some at home depot the other day.
And there is one on ebay right now under lava lamps
No kidding, I'll take a look. Thanks, Jack.
I took a look at the ones on ebay-I've seen those before. They're all frosted. I left a message with one of the sellers asking if they have clear R14 bulbs. Wish me luck.
