REPLACEMENT QUALITY GLASS FIBER OPTIC SPRAYS COMING VERY SOON!! FOR FANTASIA & CUDA BRAND LAMPS

Hello everyone, I know many of you are on the hunt or know of someone on the hunt for replacement fiber optics for their Fantasia lamp. Look no further!! As you all may or may not know already. I am currently in the process of making replacement glass fiber optic sprays. These will be identical to the original Fantasia sprays. I am overwhelmed with pre-orders and will most likely have a supply and demand issue on my hands at first, so I will do my best to have enough on hand when I begin selling them to go around. The first sprays that will be rolling out will be for the Sunburst 4000 model, Cosmos 5000 model, Regency 4001 model. All previous model Fantasia lamps, Cuda etc will have replacements as I make them available. These I hope to have ready by early to mid summer.

The large fiber optic sprays that will first be available, will be available in two lengths. The first one being a 14" spray that when inserted will hang and display its ends about mid globe on a Sunburst 4000.
The second length spray will be 18" long and is generally seen on the Black Sunburst 4000 model "Egg Shape" But will fit the Chrome and gold model Sunburst 4000 model lamps also.

The Cosmos lamp will need a measurement specific spray tailored for a exact fit within the lamp, essentialy the 14" spray should fit with no problems however I would not mind some feedback on the length of the fiber optic spray from a Cosmos 5000 model. "Measure from the ferrule to the end tips of the fibers, I know multiple sprays were used on the Cosmos, some shorter than others, just reply to this discussion with the measurements, please and thank you! :-)

These fiber optic sprays are in no way easy to make and will be made by hand and not in a factory, the cost of materials, especially the glass fiber optics is a bit pricy, the work and the process that goes into getting a spray fully assembled from start to finish with a haircut takes a bit of time. The price tag on these sprays will be most likely in the neighborhood of $100-125 each, that will be determined when they are made available for sale. I am a quality person and will make the price tag worth it's cost. I know you all know these sprays are not available anywhere unless you purchase another lamp somewhere and snag it's spray for a replacement.

keep your eyes peeled on ebay for these sprays as this will be where I will be hosting them for sale first as where I also have many other Fantasia related replacement parts for sale, color wheels etc. I will also give a heads up to you all on here prior to me listing them on ebay. Reply to this thread to give me an idea of how many "goo members" alone I will be helping out with sprays. I look forward in helping many of you get your vintage Fantasia lamps back!!
 
As a heads up I WILL NOT be offering "Heat Formed" replacement sprays as the process in doing this is very involved and requires special techniques and equipment I do not have access to, perhaps down the road when the lighting business I am trying to get launched is successfully up and running.

Regarding the conversation regarding European taxes.  I assume the European members are referring to V.A.T. (VALUE ADDED TAXES), which do not apply to exports to the U.S. (Depending on the commodity and value of the shipment, etc., US import duties may be applied by U.S. Customs at the time of clearance.)  Here's an online article I happed across explaining VAT, which I found interesting:

Anyone know where I can purchase a colour wheel for Fantasia 400 lamp

I would think making some type of washer that would snug up to the wide top area of the ferrule, thus raising it a tad, would work. The two I ordered should be here in about a week and I am curious to check into the matter.
I used to make color wheel replacements for the Sunburst 4000 lamps. I have had new requests for them so i may start making them again.

Please can anyone tell me how to get bulb out of Fantasia 4000 lamp
There should be a release lever arm just to the right of the socket. Press that down to release the bulb.

Hello.  I'm looking for the fiber sprays for a Chrome Fantasia 4000.  Can anyone help?  My annoying pet pig knocked it off my inherited grandmothers table and they shattered.  I'm devastated...

Look back in this thread until about page 12 of this thread. There is a man in Germany who is still selling replacement glass fiber optic sprays. The link to his website should be there, also instructions on how to order should be on those pages also.

You are wonderful - Thank you!

Are you still making these sprays
