New Astro in daylight. Looks pink but is actually really red. Using Panasonic lumix model from 08. Love that flow.
i'm glad this modification is working for you all. my blue/blue astro has been flowing perfectly for the past 5 years with this modification. i've also run it for a few days at a time and it did not overheat.
I used a buddies tin snips on the keyless fixture and it worked quite well. I would suggest it but be careful. If you cut to much you are screwed. I cut a few times just shaving a little at a time and testing to see if it fit. Just bought a standard 40 watt bulb (can't remember the name of the style). I did not however put in a dimmer. So far I am happy with the straight hook up from the wall. I haven't had the time to run it for more than 6 hours so I am curious to see if it overheats at some point. Might have to implement the dimmer at some point.
Question for you: Have you ever rewired a Smart Astro? Somebody is selling a base unit on ebay right now from the UK and I am thinking about jumping on it. I have wanted one for a few years now.
It's weird how red always photographs pink!!! Looks like it's flowing great!!!! Is that the one you rewired???
Very Nice Walter! I have the pink model and when it is turned off the wax looks purple, tricky tricky Mathmos!
