Good to hear back from you. I've tried a couple of the lamps made with the simplified retro formula and they worked well for a few days. After that they turned cloudy. I've other ideas having looked at the original patents and after I get some money together I'm going to try what I think is a better idea on the formula to eliminate the salt. I'll be posting as I develop something that actually works. Keep in touch and maybe we can come up with something that's workable.
