Looking for a color wheel motor

Hello people of the Goo variety, I my self like the lava lamps, but my true love is the fiber optic lamps..

Now i am hoping to get another motor for my color wheel on my Fantasia Love Bug.,

Does not have to be original motor, but the color wheel does need to fit into it of course.

Or if some one knows  of a good change over one, could…

Sun Fading

This is my first try at sun fading a lamp, I couldn't believe how fast the blue faded. just took about four hours in the sun. The bottle was a white/blue bottle from 1994 that I had found at my local thrift store. You can't tell from the photo, but the wax had started to turn an off yellowish color which turned orange near the base of the bottle when running. This picture was taken after I had transferred the contents to the Carlisle bottle. The wax is now red with yellow liquid, but due to…

II sealed the…

Customizing a black base/top

I found a couple lava lamps at a goodwill one is smaller with cloudy clear liquid and navy blue lava on a brushed silver base. the one I'm planning on fixing up is a midnight from 1999.

When checking the liquid out in the parking lot, it looked like it barely had a tint of the old mason jars that are blueish green. but it was practically clear. the lava is white. when I had the chance I switched my two globes and it now has the blue/purple globe…

Cloudy and New

I'm new here and a newbie collector, but have always had some type of lava since childhood. Searched site and still had a question. Is it possible to still have a cloudy lava lamp arrive via shipping, that is brand new from a know company, or is this never the case and I was mislead?

Thanx!

Making your own liquid (Bubbly wax, solutions, flow, etc.)

First of all, this is not a guide but notes for my self, that hopefully others might find useful. Stuff you find here might already have been described elsewhere on this site.

First the basics

What makes the lava lamp flow is basically the liquid solution being made correctly for the specific wax your lamp uses. In other words, you might not be able to take one liquid from one lamp,…

Need new oil

So my brother was by a couple weeks ago and knocked over my 1975 lamp. The cap (which was already damaged) broke and all the oil spilled out on my carpet. The wax is still in there and very little oil remains. The oil is up to the wide part of the globe . I was wondering if anyone knows what i can use to fill it up again. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
