I had a Coachman, red/clear, in 1974, when I was 12 years old. I remember it dearly, and have another now to remember it by. A few others have been accumulated since, but none will ever capture the patterns that lamp played on my ceiling as a kid.
My Collection Includes this many Lava Lamps:
My Favorite Lava Lamp is:
Red Clear Coach
Red Clear Tower
Now working on 48" Orange Clear Lava Tower....
Thanks for the thoughts! What you describe is nearly what I had in mind. I've opted for the plug with a breaker plugged into a timer. Seemed to solved the issue of the lamps not being turned off, as well as left flexibility for the future since he is an older teen. Thank you again -- Holly
Todd, the issue of wiring our lamps has come up again. I had wanted to run the wires through a hole with a grommet in the wall to the other side where I would mount a strip with a breaker. My son wants to wire. I posted a discussion about the matter, and am getting feedback strongly against wiring. Since you have done it, I would appreciate any insight. Just follow my page to the discussion. Thank you!
Thx for getting back to me and solving the mystery. Knew I saw a thread about this quite some time ago and could not find it to follow up. Had planned to ask you a couple of questions re: how you did the wiring, but solved the dilemma myself last night.
Welcome to Oozing Goo, The Lava Lamp Syndicate which has been the leading lava lamp website since 1997. We all excited since we have switched over to this "community" version of the site earlier this month.
