Lol. Yeah even the newspaper used a few of my innuendos.

Looks like mostly US based folks on here. I has recently rediscovered my lava lamp fixation after unboxing one of my old lamps after moving house only to discover the water had clouded.

I am now on a mission to refurbish my lamps. I mainly have Mathmos Jets... been buying more and have to hide them from my wife!

Thank you for the kind words, I'm happy to be in nice company, and like-minded people should share all which inspires, soothes or is just plain groovy.

And thanks for your approval of my membership - Club Lunar is one club i'm really glad to join.

Nice buy on the rain lamp! Photos to come? I've not seen one verifiably from Italy before; in the US they used to have a reputation for being an Italian thing, through they were actually invented in the USA.

For the moment all my lamps are in boxes. I moved some months ago. Nest year I will make a rack so I can put them on display again. Can't wait.

Thanks, Modulo '70!

I'm a novice at this stuff, but I hope to gain some knowledge as well as share what I've been up to.

I guess I should jump right in. I've emptied the contents of a store-bought lava lamp into another bottle to fabricate a new custom lava lamp. I know that manufacturers uniformly discourage opening them, and most say that doing so will ruin it. But at the same time, enthusiasts uniformly deny and disregard that directive...Haha. I have already emptied the contents of the store bought lamp into my custom bottle.

What I have seen very little about is the re-capping process. Is it better to do it cold? Or do it while it is hot and in motion? I think if if I cap it cold positive pressure (probably significant) will develop. If I cap it hot, it will draw a vacuum as it cools. One person I found online said you cap it cool and "burp it" as it heats up the first time. I think that would leave me back in the vacuum scenario when it cools again.

Any thoughts or experience on this one? I admit I haven't perused the site much yet so for all know this is the most F.A.Q. 

Thanks,

Rob

Hey Jerome,

I can see that you have a very nice collection as well.

I particularly like your Glitterama Bullet lamp - really nice and really unbelievable how low of a price you paid for it!

Hi Modulo '70,

I picked two of them up in the mid-90's from a second hand record shop in either Gloucester or Cheltenham, 25 quid each at the time I think.

Cheers,

James

Thanks! It's very French so here in the US you don't run into it a whole lot!

Hi Modulo '70,
you visited Mathmos factory in Poole, did you? Could you take a look at the workers filling the bottles?
Did they wear protective clothing like gloves or a mask or something?
I wonder if it's a good idea to do exchange of the fillings or other work on lava-lamps in my kitchen and the basin of my kitchen... where I also prepare my food.
Markus.
