"I have a 3d printer, and would be willing to print caps for some people.  I can do them in ABS plastic, and then place them in an acetone bath to give them a smooth and shiny apperance. "

"I have a couple of questions. First, how much did the Shapeways cap cost? Second, what formula are you using? That lamp ended up looking amazing, and I might like to try your formula."

"The old Century I have from Grandma had a lot more of that white powder than yours.  The water was super cloudy and the cap was cracked. The cloudy may have been from the bad cap.  The goo was bad and full of bubbles, the…"

"The Shapeways Cap came in!  It looks a lot better, there are no flaws burrs or voids like the other printer.  Some minor details like the radius on the threads and the lead in look a lot more like my CAD.  The other printer…"

"I don't know about Lava Lamp or Mathmos wax, but per a members conversation with a goo kits rep, temps over 130F can start to break down the wax.  Seems like 176F should be safe for normal use."

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrs.sandraessien@yahoo.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Sandra Essien

Lava greetings to you. Good luck also in your classic lava lamp refurb. The Century was the very first American lava lamp!
