Why are my bulbs blowing out like this?

Started this discussion. Last reply by BaBa-Gooey 6 hours ago. 6 Replies

I have had 4 bulbs since I started my collection 4 months ago blow out and look like this.  They are all schylling lamps.  Others have blown out and look normal.What causes them to blow and look like this?  It is not just one base.I…Continue

Two New Lamps - Goo made from scratch

Started this discussion. Last reply by k-nano 17 hours ago. 5 Replies

Still perfecting and fine tuning.  Here is my latest red lava with blue water, made yesterday.  I am experimenting with different wattages and lumens of light bulbs and how they change the flow.  How much heat do increases in lumens provide, when…Continue

3 New Lamps - All Made From Scratch

Started this discussion. Last reply by Claude J on Friday. 5 Replies

Over the last week or so, I have made three lamps from scratch, all the exact same way, using the same supplies, same brand of wax, same exact process.  You can see in the pics below how my mileage varied. My total combined cost for these three…Continue

TUTORIAL REMOVED

Started this discussion. Last reply by Erin yesterday. 24 Replies

I removed the thread containing the tutorial, after receiving two threatening and strange emails.  One  today and one on Monday.  Why people can't just enjoy sharing information and have to start drama is beyond me.  I want no part of it.I don't…Continue

Is there an engineer in the house?

Schylling should consider hiring the people behind this.  Wild stuff.https://courses.engr.illinois.edu/ece445/getfile.asp?id=9064Continue

1st time making my own goo - Success!!!

Started this discussion. Last reply by Claude J on Saturday. 18 Replies

Yesterday, I had the day to myself and was caught up on work, so I decided to try to make my own lamp, goo and water, from scratch.  I never thought it would work, as I have read that making the goo is very difficult. My first try was a failure.…Continue

Very Good Lava Dye

Started this discussion. Last reply by BaBa-Gooey Feb 3. 3 Replies

If your goo is faded, or you want to change liquid and re-use the stock goo and bring it back to life, try this dye (linked below) from Michaels.  It is cheap and has worked great for me.  A $4 bottle will color two 14" or 17" lamps.  I re-energized…Continue

As I have mentioned, I am a new collector, who has 7 brand new lamps, purchased between Thanksgiving 2018 and the present.6 of the 7 new lamps run very hot, after an hour of flowing all wax barely leaves the top of the lamps.  These 6 lamps require…Continue

"It isn't Schylling's fault but Schylling certainly sucks.  I had 2 lamps so defective they had to be returned (in a month's time) and about 75% of the 10 lamps or so I have bought since Thanksgiving run very, very hot.  Most…"

"Unfortunately, this is a case of planned obsolescence. The bulbs are intentionally made very poorly so that there is a high likelihood that they will fail within some optimum time frame that results in you buying more bulbs as replacements. It works…"

James K. replied to BaBa-Gooey's discussion Why are my bulbs blowing out like this?
"I've seen that happen several times before. If a bulb has been running a while so its pretty hot and moisture touches the part of the bulb the thermal shock causes a small crack and as Keith mentioned the filament then burns in the presence of…"

BaBa-Gooey replied to BaBa-Gooey's discussion Why are my bulbs blowing out like this?
"These are either Lava brand bulbs, or Phillips or GE from Home Depot or Loews.  Those are the only places I have ever bought bulbs for my lava lamps. I would think if this was even slightly common maybe schylling would have recognized it?  "

Keith replied to BaBa-Gooey's discussion Why are my bulbs blowing out like this?
"Just a guess, but that looks like smoke residue.  Like maybe the vacuum seal gave way allowing the filament to actually burn?  But bulbs in general tend to be hit or miss for me.  Cheap bulbs can last a long time, or blow in a…"

k-nano replied to BaBa-Gooey's discussion Two New Lamps - Goo made from scratch
"Some glitter lamps use a resistor as the heat source and LED's for the light source, which are inherently brighter. This set up allows for more lighting options too, (think change colors on command) but most lava lamps require more heat than…"

BaBa-Gooey replied to BaBa-Gooey's discussion Two New Lamps - Goo made from scratch
"I appreciate the info.  I just thought that with two 40 watt blubs, the higher lumen would result in more light, which would mean more heat.  I had no idea it meant the opposite."

k-nano replied to BaBa-Gooey's discussion Two New Lamps - Goo made from scratch
"Remember, incandescent bulbs mostly produce heat and a little bit of light. It's the heat your after. If you want light, then LED is the way to go. Increased lumens in an incanscent bulb means less heat unless it's a higher wattage bulb in…"

BaBa-Gooey replied to BaBa-Gooey's discussion Two New Lamps - Goo made from scratch
"The lumens measure the amount of light a blub puts out, so I would guess the higher lumen rating, the more heat the incandescent bulb would put out.  Here is the red one with some backlighting and also a black lava/yellow water one I did a few…"

k-nano replied to BaBa-Gooey's discussion Two New Lamps - Goo made from scratch
"The flow of the lamp is entirely dictated by heat. Incandescent bulbs are the choice type of bulbs because they are the most inefficient bulbs in terms of converting electricity to light. Most of the energy is lost to heat dissipation. In the case…"
