    WTB century base

    Started by jeff in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by Mr MaGoo 1 minute ago. 1 Reply

    Hi fellow lava heads!Been lurking here for a while as I built my collection up, but finally needed to post as I'm looking for a part. I recently picked up a slightly pre-90's (I think) century off of craigslist. It's in good shape overall, and looks good from the outside. But the base, specifically the bottom plate that's steel, is rusted badly. It doesn't effect the function of the lamp, for now, but it might eventually given that the bulb mounts to the rusted plate and might fail at some…Continue

    New Mathmos Lamp

    Started by doddy in Collecting. Last reply by Erin 4 hours ago. 23 Replies

    On the latest Mathmos blog, they say they are releasing a new lamp in the autumn. What are your thoughts? Do any of you have any information? I am hoping that it's a larger lamp like the lunar, but knowing Mathmos it will be another Neo variant or use the astro bottle. Let's at least hope we get some new interesting colourways as the current range is getting a bit stagnant now. Continue

    Tagged a NIB Red/Clear Giant but this jackass FedEx delivery guy always puts the boxes on my porch upside sown no matter how much writing there is on the box showing arrows pointing up.Needless to say, my lamp is extremely cloudy. I am going to cycle it for a couple weeks and see what happens. That cleared up one of my pink Giants but hasn't done shit for my blue/white or blue/green lamps.Any chance it comes back or do I need to filter it?On that topic, I have 5 cloudy Giants that are still not…Continue

    What's the best way to de-bubble wax?

    Started by pspees in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Stacia L Oct 11. 19 Replies

    I have a lamp that I bought off of ebay about a month ago. When it arrived the wax looked as if it had been shipped hot. Ever since the fluid has cleared up but the wax is extremely bubbly. It seems to get better with time but then it will get worse again. I was wondering what causes this (the bubbles) and what would be the best remedy? Thanks for your input!!

    Fiber Optic Spray replacement

    Started by Peggy in General Goo. Last reply by Mr MaGoo Oct 7. 4 Replies

    Hi!  I'm new to this group, but just managed to get my hands on a vintage Fantasia 4000 Sunburst Chrome lamp - minus the fiber optic spray.  I know finding them is really hit or miss, but can one be fabricated from the safer new plastic fiber optic cables?  Are there any directions on how to make one or is anyone making these at all?  I am pretty good craftwise, but this is a new direction and I'd rather not reinvent the wheel...Continue
