Hi. I am looking for a replacement spray for my Aussie Sunlo Pty Ltd fibre optic lamp. The glass fibre optic spray is approx 40cm long and 1.75cm across the base of the spray (incl the metal band) when you get around to manufacturing replacements sprays. I have pics of the lamp and the spray if rqd. tks.
I have a background in optics and have worked with fibers over the years including cutting and heat treating. I think a cottage/industrial environment is best for research/production of this product. I know a few glass blowers who have made sprays and the problems they encountered Sounds like fun and wish I was closer to NYC.
Please keep me in the loop and count me in for at least 4 sprays. Oh and I would accept and "untrimmed" spray and work on myself in the proper environment.
Hi! I'm looking for a replacement spray for a Firefly 1101. I've had it so many years, it has gotten dirty with dust and shed quite a bit. Please let me know when I can get a spray for this model. Thanks!
I love this site, and would love to find a good source of fiber! ;)
Please keep me posted.
when are the sunburst 4000 18" spray strands going to be available?
Unfortunately I believe he had to give up on making replacement fiber optic sprays.
I'd thought about making my own replacement sprays, (for my own use only), and had some ideas how to start. Unfortunately, I was unable to find a source for glass fiber optics. In the meantime, I purchased several Fantasia lamps, including the custom built "Fantasia Cosmos 2" Model 5000 posted on YouTube, (which I'm still enjoying immensely), and a regular Cosmos 2000 from ebay.
I'm still thinking about trying my hand at making a replacement spray. How difficult would it be to provide instructions, (including parts lists, types of epoxy, etc.), and possible material sources? For final trimming, I'd probably want to cover head to toe with something disposable and be sure to wear safety glasses.
I have thought about beginning the initial trim under water. (Years ago, I'd been told glass could be "cut" with scissors under water. When I broke a round telescopic sun filter, I remember trimming a piece of replacement glass under water with a pair of kitchen scissors, which worked pretty well. The edges had small chips, which were covered by the housing.)
This sold today, a spray for $372.00! I hope this helps you (or someone) work on a solution. Might you be interested in sharing the information you have? I'd be interested in trying to make one.
