Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate


Hello everyone, I know many of you are on the hunt or know of someone on the hunt for replacement fiber optics for their Fantasia lamp. Look no further!! As you all may or may not know already. I am currently in the process of making replacement glass fiber optic sprays. These will be identical to the original Fantasia sprays. I am overwhelmed with pre-orders and will most likely have a supply and demand issue on my hands at first, so I will do my best to have enough on hand when I begin selling them to go around. The first sprays that will be rolling out will be for the Sunburst 4000 model, Cosmos 5000 model, Regency 4001 model. All previous model Fantasia lamps, Cuda etc will have replacements as I make them available. These I hope to have ready by early to mid summer.

The large fiber optic sprays that will first be available, will be available in two lengths. The first one being a 14" spray that when inserted will hang and display its ends about mid globe on a Sunburst 4000.
The second length spray will be 18" long and is generally seen on the Black Sunburst 4000 model "Egg Shape" But will fit the Chrome and gold model Sunburst 4000 model lamps also.

The Cosmos lamp will need a measurement specific spray tailored for a exact fit within the lamp, essentialy the 14" spray should fit with no problems however I would not mind some feedback on the length of the fiber optic spray from a Cosmos 5000 model. "Measure from the ferrule to the end tips of the fibers, I know multiple sprays were used on the Cosmos, some shorter than others, just reply to this discussion with the measurements, please and thank you! :-)

These fiber optic sprays are in no way easy to make and will be made by hand and not in a factory, the cost of materials, especially the glass fiber optics is a bit pricy, the work and the process that goes into getting a spray fully assembled from start to finish with a haircut takes a bit of time. The price tag on these sprays will be most likely in the neighborhood of $100-125 each, that will be determined when they are made available for sale. I am a quality person and will make the price tag worth it's cost. I know you all know these sprays are not available anywhere unless you purchase another lamp somewhere and snag it's spray for a replacement.

keep your eyes peeled on ebay for these sprays as this will be where I will be hosting them for sale first as where I also have many other Fantasia related replacement parts for sale, color wheels etc. I will also give a heads up to you all on here prior to me listing them on ebay. Reply to this thread to give me an idea of how many "goo members" alone I will be helping out with sprays. I look forward in helping many of you get your vintage Fantasia lamps back!!
As a heads up I WILL NOT be offering "Heat Formed" replacement sprays as the process in doing this is very involved and requires special techniques and equipment I do not have access to, perhaps down the road when the lighting business I am trying to get launched is successfully up and running.

Thankyou does he make the full lamp or just the sprays
He just sells the lamps and sprays, you can buy the sprays seperatly from the lamp or together. He does not manufacture the sprays he just has stock in them.
So you have a Tracking Nummer so you can See were IT is ?
If Not ASK Mr. Virmont for the Tracking Nummer because this is really long

Joe - my Pyroball has been in the DHL system since 2/17.  I'm patiently waiting...

Everything is explained in Detail, just read the Pages before

No worries.  I have a tracking number, and it's somewhere between Germany and USA.  :>)  

I assumed it was going DHL Worldwide Express which would have delivered it in a few days.  It doesn't look like that's the case.

So, I did a little more exploring on the DHL website for Germany, and my package was shipped Paket (Package) International.  

I couldn't find any DHL shipping time estimates for Paket International, but other web discussions from a few years ago seem to indicate that it will take several weeks.

The estimate for DHL Express shipping from Germany to USA is 2 days, but it's costly.  My 3.5 kg package would have cost $120 to ship Express.  I suppose I got spoiled by the DHL Express shipping from the UK.  UK Express for the same package would have been half the cost - about $60.

So, I wait.  Not something we Americans are very good at.  :>)

Good news!  

My Pyrofag lamp arrived today.  The spray is fantastic and works very well in my Sunburst 4000.  I'm ordering three (3) more sprays.

Pictures soon... 

Good news Kirk!

Definitely, Bill.  These sprays are full and well-proportioned.  They are new and better than my best used Fantasia Sunburst spray.

I almost gave up on the package, though.  It took a month to get to me.

Can't wait to see pics of the sprays. I know that shipping time was epic. I am wondering if they didn't throw it on a wind powered clipper!!!

I added a small layer of electrical tape to the Pyrofag ferrule so it fits more snugly in the Sunburst opening. It actually fits and rotates fine without the tape, too.

I've been running the Pyrofag spray for 10 hours now, and the hard plastic ferrule is warm, but that's it. No issue with the plastic ferrule.

The Pyrofag spray is gorgeous!
