They have worked OK for me
Have redone a lot of lamps with them
Sometimes mixed results when i first started but usually Acceptable
Just dont overheat the goo when heating it to put in globe
Use water-bath in slow heated pan of water and monitor it,
do not microwave, its too easy to overheat it
I just got my 3rd kit after having good results with the first 2, this one seems stuck
making blobs, big ones or little ones but only blobs. So far nothing I have tried produces stretchy goo.
I am hoping it will mature after running a while. It's only been 2 days so far.
Definite progress being made. 1 looking pretty good, 2 coming along and 1 I just put
some more PG in. Right now 3 out of 4 I enjoy watching. So I'm pretty happy with my 3rd batch of MT goo.
they are not like ebay with tracking #s and such, most vendors are not.
I don't recall ever getting a tracking, but its been a while since i ordered one
I always got my Paypal conformation when I purchased
Is it hot enough? Mine do best at 115 - 120. I would usually add PG 1/2 ml at a time till the blobs reach the top (giving it 5 minutes or so between additions.) I don't know what you are using, just surf? The other thing I might do is mix up some salt solution and add 4-5 drops at a time till blobs reach the top, giving the same kind of time between additions. My first thought is still lack of heat, though.
