Snicks replied to Reed's discussion Defective Century? Or am I doing it wrong?
"I have an old Century base like this. I used the heat ring from another lamp to mold a new one out of heavy tin foil. The sockets sit lower in the old bases, so the heat ring from a newer lamp won't work, and I had to extend the foil heat ring…"

Red Letour replied to Reed's discussion Defective Century? Or am I doing it wrong?
"I'd think you could fake a heating ring by carefully cutting up a soda can with a tinsnips. Or folding up some heavy duty aluminum foil and working with that first. If nothing else, you can't cut yourself on aluminum foil and a regular…"

"CORRECT!!!!! Heating rings were not added until later. I am not sure but i know atleast late 70s probably late to mid 8-s Try the globe on an aristocrat base. Century bases do run much cooler than aristocrat bases."

TomK replied to Reed's discussion Defective Century? Or am I doing it wrong?
"One thing you need to remember if you are going to use the heat ring is that it will greatly decrease the amount of light that comes down & out of the starlite holes in the base. I have found that 60W bulbs work just fine in the Centurys…"

Red Letour replied to Reed's discussion Defective Century? Or am I doing it wrong?
"I was very disappointed when the bulb on my gen-you-whine new Mathmos Telstar burned out in 90 days and the only replacement "mini reflector spots" I could find online were 25 watt bulbs, versus the 40w it came with. 25W just doesn't…"

Sgt Pepper replied to Reed's discussion Defective Century? Or am I doing it wrong?
"First off to clear up. Century bases are colder than aristocrat bases. I would try a 60 on a dimmer. Some of my really old century bases need a dimmed 60 to work.  Next the heat rings. They were introduced around 1990. No 70s century lamps had…"

"Im not sure about USA aristocrat bases, but I do know that the century bases are alot cooler than the china aristocrat bases. My USA purple/yellow flows beautifully on the black neon china base, but on my century base (with a 40w bulb and the heat…"

Todd Miller replied to Reed's discussion Defective Century? Or am I doing it wrong?
"I have five Century's and only the last lamp I got from ebay had the heat ring. Playing around will all my misc 52oz bottles & bases, I can say for a fact that the Century bases take a long to heat up compared to a 32oz. I plan on making…"

My First Lava Lamp was:
A lame one I bought from from radio shack. It had a black base and cap, clear liquid and pinkish goo. It got dropped too many times while moving and became cloudy and eventually the cap cracked. I chicked it and was lava-less for a few years. I recently purchased a pair of vintage Aristocrat lamps from ebay. Gold with holes in the base, clear liquid and red lava. The difference between true Lava lamps and the radio shack lamp is beyond words. I am hooked!
