"Interesting, I saw bulbs like that but assumed the "35w equivalent light" wouldn't work because the lamps use heat not light.The listing also ended so perhaps you meant something else. Either way though that bulb type would only be…"
"another option is the halogen bulbs which have the standard bulb shape you need but use a halogen inside, i use em in my crestworths and found them to work well, just get one that is slighty under the voltage you need so for instance 40watt…"
"I was trying to find a 35W bulb as mathmos sells but none available on ebay. I suppose you could use a 40W and then dim to 35W? What exactly does the dimmer setup look like, do you need one for each lamp or could it work for a power strip somehow"
"The cap is a Crestworth but the base I had was in a sorry state, but I always wanted a yellow/red Crestworth Astro mini, so I ordered a Astrobaby base second hand from eBay and spray painted it to match the cap. Looks vintage and made me very happy."
I live in Scotland and collect Ouija boards and Lava Lamps.
Where I Live:
My First Lava Lamp was:
I was given a Lava lamp for Christmas when I was about 13. I used it most nights for a year when the bulb finally blew. I put It into storage. It was a cheap china knock off, but as I remember was a nice flow. 2 years ago I found a mini rocket lamp at a car boot sale for £2 I bought it. I was amazed once again. I started researching lava lamps, I had never even heard of Mathmos! I was hooked! My nephew wanted my little rocket lamp so I gave him it, and started heading for bigger and better lamps, 2 years later and I am the proud owner of many Mathmos lamps.
I have tried to explain to my friends how great they are, referring to them as "the perfect pet", but they just don't get it.
I have still never found my original lamp I had when I was 13... *sigh*
