Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Here is the lamp that was fixed with the new spring. It flows perfectly now. Before, the lava would NOT attach to the spring. I tried cleaning, it did not work. Tried spinning, it did not work. The lava sat at the bottom as a blob. Tried different bulbs, nothing. The new spring fixed it.

I love the flow of this lamp, It is exactly what I'm trying to achieve when I work on my lamps. Did you change out the water in this lamp? Just trying to find a way to get this kind of flow on my revamped lamps. I'm going to lowe's today to try to find new coils. Do you know what caused your wax to not connect with the original coil? Was it the size?

I did make a new spring. The replacement spring will be a bit thicker than the one that is in there now. Check my other photos as I took pictures of the new/old spring and the new spring package (purchased at Lowes). Should help you out.

Lovely flow. Did you make a new spring? I'm not having luck on finding springs that are thin enough.

Yeah, I noticed that too. You would think they would do it that way, but I guess not. Oh well. At least it's flowing like it should now. Better than anything I have seen so far :)

Your talking about the "trench" around the bottom of the globe right? There is a raised center and then this trench along the outer edge. If that is it, I made my coil fit into that. Previously it sat on the bump and was not centered.
