Hey Gwen, I couldn't find any coils for bottom of globe. I know you told me any thing stainless around the house that has holes. I got some stainless washers from home depot but they are sticking to parraffin wax when they float. but as of now the tester is still heating so waiting to see what happens.

Hello Gwen. Thank you for your welcome.

Sorry I  haven't been active since joining. From about April through to Oct is my "working week" so I'm up to my neck. I will pop in more regularly on my "week-end off" (from Oct through to Apr - chuckles).

I joined witht the intention of asking about a couple of Lava Lamps I've got but I really haven't had 30 seconds to spare since joining.

Reards

Hi Gwen
I fear I'm out of my depth here - I know next to nothing about lava lamps except that I like them and have been on the lookout for an old one for a long time. I recently saw one at a flea market that I'd like some advice on - basically the wax inside had formed a thick layer of solid sediment at the bottom of the lamp. The guy selling it said it simply hadnt been used for a very long time, but it looked to my untrained eye like it was quite far gone. The brass casing was in amazing condition though - it's one of those lantern styled lamps. So I'm hoping you might be able to point me in the right direction, or answer my question - ie is it possible for the wax to stop working, or should it continue to work as long as the cannister is never opened, and the bulb is working (which apprently it is)?

Thanks!
MArcus
