Looking for some 52oz bases

Started Dec 12, 2012 0 Replies

I'm not looking for anything fancy, plain silver is fine, I've just had a hard time locating any in the right size, and nothing has shown up at the local thrift shops.  I bought a half dozen globes…Continue

DasGrinch replied to Dr. WHAT?!'s discussion The Metallic Wax Techique
"Yeah, mercury is so heavy, it probably would settle out immediately, and would never be carried by the goo."

DasGrinch replied to Dr. WHAT?!'s discussion The Metallic Wax Techique
"Welp, I have some very fine aluminum powder for pyrotechnics, 5 micrometer and 30 micrometer, unfortunately both of these are so fine they're more of a grey than a silver, and while they mixed readily in the wax, I did have a significant amount…"

DasGrinch replied to Jus's discussion Check out this flow!
"Yeah, I tried that...things did not go well.  I got cloudy liquid, then it cleared up, then the goo just started climbing the glass, on every side, I finally just dumped it out, refilled it with distilled water, and gookit surf and it's…"

Metallic Goo

"Well, I have some 5 micron aluminum powder laying around in the shop, maybe I'll give that a shot, and I'll let you know how it works.  I would fully expect that to settle out over time, but it may be small enough to stay…"

DasGrinch replied to Jus's discussion Check out this flow!
"I was actually about to ask what your technique was, since my gookits all flow, but nothing that beautiful.  You're using dawn instead of the gookit surfactant?  Any additives?  Epsom salts, and the like?"

Metallic Goo

"What are you using to make it metallic, still the metallic sharpies, or have you found something else?"

Looking for some 52oz bases

I'm not looking for anything fancy, plain silver is fine, I've just had a hard time locating any in the right size, and nothing has shown up at the local thrift shops.  I bought a half dozen globes from American Science and Surplus, but I have only one base to display them.  If anyone could point me to a source for them, I'd much appreciate it, or if someone has some extras they're looking to part with, let me know. See More

DasGrinch replied to Loren's discussion Black light bulb in a motion lamp?
"Well, the black light uses a very very dark blue coating to absorb most of the lower frequencies and allow only the UV to go out.  The absorption of all that light is probably going to make the bulb run hotter than a 40w standard.  I…"

DasGrinch replied to Jonas Clark-Elliott's discussion Mods, move if necessary - 32oz. globes with coil, anyone?
"The big globes are 52oz, I measured when I put my gookit together. I ordered 5 more (and some rubber stoppers to see if they'd fit).  The smaller ones are probably 32oz then.  The ones from sciplus I mean. "

DasGrinch replied to Jonas Clark-Elliott's discussion Mods, move if necessary - 32oz. globes with coil, anyone?
"http://www.sciplus.com/singleItem.cfm/terms/15801 They've got two sizes, both sans caps.  Mine did have a spring in it, I don't know if they all do."

DasGrinch replied to Dr. WHAT?!'s discussion The Gookit Tutorial
"Experimenting with goo kits would get very expensive very quickly it seems, especially with the prices they charge for shipping.  I've got some old lava louie goo I might try to add a sharpie too though."

DasGrinch replied to Dr. WHAT?!'s discussion The Gookit Tutorial
"Awesome, thanks for the tip.  I picked up an empty globe cheap on a surplus place, I want to make a second one and I thought a metallic one would be pretty sweet after seeing your tutorial."
