"Hi Makstuff, My Astro had the same problem when I got it a while back. my fix was very similar to yours but with a few differences. I used a pantyhose as a filter. I washed the bottle and springs before putting everything back together and also used…"

"I absolutely agree. In my case, I got a replacement bottle from the online store I bought the lamp from (not directly from Mathmos because they wont ship to my country) and only after receiving the replacement I decided to try and clean the original…"

"I didn't bother to re-seal it. In an old Mathmos factory video it looks like they are using a hot glue gun to seal the bottles. https://youtu.be/2zeGR0xqrJQ?t=250"

ImMelting replied to Fernando Nicotera's discussion Can someone please explain Mathmos' Metallic to me?
"Yes it seems that the newer ones are clearer but the coating is still very fragile and scratches easily at least at the time they posted that review."

"Looks super clean! Good job, I haven't rebuilt one yet but have an clear/orange with this issue. What were the fillings? I had a hunch that they may be a corrosion of some kind. Maybe a big powerful magnet could pull them from the suspension...…"

Pierre Brazeau replied to ImMelting's discussion Mathmos Astro - dirty wax
"Wow that coil and wax looks exactly like my lamp's coil and wax. I bought mine approximately 10 years ago at Walmart my lamp was made in china. You're probably correct about the dirty coil being contaminated from dirt that was picked up…"

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:( mrsstellakhalil5888@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless
Stella.
