    Chicago Craigslist Humongo

    Started by Jim in Collecting. Last reply by Jim yesterday. 78 Replies

    Based upon feedback from the seller, I suspect I was not the only Oozing Goo'er who inquired about the lamp. He said he was amazed by how many interested parties contacted him about it. To put your minds at ease, the lamp is no longer available is it is currently sitting in the bed of my pickup truck. You likely didn't want it anyways as its a Franken-lamp. Came with a Colossus base, but a Humongo globe. Ok, scratch what I said earlier about this being a Franken-lamp; its a Humongo from top to…Continue

    Goo Kit Supplies

    Good morning fellow lava lovers, I have about four boxes of Goo Kit supplies. Tubes, funnels, brushes, etc. I also have a number of quarts of Goo base, some partial, some seemingly full, but all have been in storage for several years. Not knowing the shelf life of MagmaTower Goo, I can't say whether its still good or not.Please reply to this thread or shoot me a message. If there is interest, I'll take a full accounting of what's there and we can discuss how to make it yours.Please note that I…Continue

    Telstar Base re-design

    Hi everyone, so I had a Telstar but the inside where the bulb fitted broke, it was so hard to put a bulb in and seemed like such an awkward design. Anyways cut a long story short they sent me a replacement and the inside is now totally different and much better (fixed to the bottom) anyone else had a new one and noticed this ? RobContinue

    My silver century only makes pea sized bubbles...why?

    Started by Arne in Collecting Jun 16. 0 Replies

    I tried anything from different wattage bulbs to removing the reflector and using a dimmer but no matter what I do the silver century always makes many pea sized bubbles all the time...there has to be a way for it to act normally because when I just got it, it ran just like a normal lava lamp one evening...but never again.Any ideas what I can do here? I dont care for this pea flow at all and also I dont wanne sell it like this...which is a bit sad as I even have the original box and paperwork…Continue

    I haven't been active here for a while, but I hope to change that! I'm selling off a bunch of lava-related stuff I've accumulated. Please make offers! I'm not looking to get rich off these items. I want them gone and I'd like a teeny bit of extra cash.Trade offers are also welcome. I'd really love to find an empty Consort globe with intact gold cap, if anyone wants some of my items and has a spare. I'd also love to locate one of the iron-stand Auras Glow, or one of the little Mathmos rocketship…Continue
